Re: American Thanksgiving.

I am going to bake a pumpkin pie (my first attempt) thanks to the suggestions of you nice EFers on pumpkin, listen to Country Special old podcasts, and just be thankful for the good things in life. I like the spirit of this holiday - nothing to do with religion, gifts, etc. but just about food and loved ones.

A Happy TG to all of you who celebrate it

I have heard the Marriott in Zürich does Thanksgiving dinner.
Really? I looked online, but maybe I need to call ... did you see a sign or an ad or something?

Re: American Thanksgiving.

Plans amended!

Did weekly shop with m-i-l this morning (she called after I posted last night) and it took long enough I can't be bothered to fiddle with cooking a "big" breakfast today.

Meanwhile, in REWE I found some really nice looking whole turkey legs (not just drumstick) - they have turkey (labeled "puten") in pieces, so if you've a hankering for some bird, it's there, and the price wasn't so bad either! (Dark meat is my favorite, they did have "whole" boneless breasts as well as smaller pieces too)

So, dinner with m-i-l on Sat, to spend some family time, roasting the leg on Sunday with trimmings on Sunday. I'll bake a couple pumpkin pies, one to bring Sat, one for us Sun also.

Re: American Thanksgiving.

Yeah, I decided to cook some fish with a lemon aioli, some braised kohlrabi and some mussels to start.

It's in keeping with tradition, actually - my late father used to visit us every Thanksgiving and most of the time turkey was not on the menu - he liked lamb, salmon, whatever else. Oh, and pumpkin pie without the crust. So I'm going to make a meal he'd like - well, he didn't like vegetables, but he'd like the fish.

Happy THanksgiving to everyone.

Re: American Thanksgiving.

Going to the store today to pick up my turkey. Menu of Stuffing, orange cranberry sauce, green bean casserole, pumpkin pie, and of course TURKEY is on the menu! We are celebrating on Saturday though as today is a workday and the kids are in daycare.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL!
