My First Thankgiving Dinner



Thanksgiving- The great American Holiday that celebrate the harvest of the year, the food that we have, and everything we have to be thankful in our lives.

This post is a little late, but a bit of weekend drama stood in my way...

Now not being American, or having ever been to America, it’s not something I’ve ever taken part in. Only to be observed through the eyes of a stressed Monica Geller from the comfort of my sofa.

However, this year, I am living with an American, and another flatmate lived in Austria last year where they celebrate Thanksgiving. So it was decided, Thanksgiving would come to England this year!... or at least my house.

The way I have interpreted it, it’s a celebration of Friends and Family too.

This year, I am living with 7 others girls, and it’s been amazing so far. Of course, we have our differences, and our squabbles. At University, there’s always the risk of housemate issues, living with people you don’t know, personalities clash, or simply you don’t have anything in common, and yet, I really think I’ve got a great house this year who I can call a great group of friends.

So I have that to be thankful for.

However of course, let’s be honest here, the foods the big part!
  

We started with homemade butternut squash and pumpkin soup with tiger bread.



Then of course we had cheese. Ok, so I don’t think Camembert is very traditional however look at it. Look at it!!
Ohhh, the warm, oozing pleasure...


Our beautiful ham, cooking away
Our Meat 'Cake' as it was rebranded due to the lack of loaf tin.


I think the success of the meal can be partially determined by the end state. I’d like to think that we had epically devoured our dinner with much thanks and gratitude!
We did have pecan pie to finish off the meal, but honestly we were all so stuffed that we had to leave it.
My first Thanksgiving was a roaring success. I had so much fun with friends and to me that’s what matters. If you do one thing tonight, make sure you tell your friends and family how much they mean to you, because times do get tough, and shit happens, so when it does your going to what someone round to help you.
