Re: American Thanksgiving.

making a chicken instead of a turkey but all the other key ingredients are happily there...cranberry wine sauce, stuffing, sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie, green beans...i love the day and especially sharing it with friends- it's a fine reason to celebrate

Banana. What about Banana-chocolate chip/chunk like Chunky Monkey?

At any rate, I'm doing a chicken, but we've not decided when - tomorrow doesn't work for us - maybe sometime next week.

Re: American Thanksgiving.

Yay, Thanksgiving dinner for my WG and friends this Saturday!

Turkey, stuffing, cranberry chutney, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes with marshmallows, creamed peas with mushrooms, cornbread, pumpkin pie, blueberry muffins.

Is it too early for eggnog? I just love this stuff and I'm looking for any excuse to be making it... Well... it already seems like Christmas in all the stores, so I will probably be going for it!

Could someone enlighten me about the "Sweet potatoes with marshmallows" please - I cannot imagine it at all - how on earth do you cook it???
Boil sp's until soft. When done, mash and add butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, 1 egg and unsweetened condensed milk. Spread in a baking dish and top with marshmallows (big ones work best, cut them in half). Bake for approximate 40 mins or until mm's are golden brown

Re: American Thanksgiving.

OK, last-ditch attempt here to celebrate American Thanksgiving on my own ...

Anyone know of a restaurant - US-based hotel chain restaurant or SOMETHING - that's serving Thanksgiving dinner? Heard about Basel in past years, but that's too far to go after work today. Figure that anything public would happen today, but would settle for the weekend too.

NOT NOT NOT looking to barge in on anyone's family celebration. Just seeking information.

Re: American Thanksgiving.

And by "public" I do not mean state or locally sponsored. I'm aware I'm in a tiny minority, so spare me the questions about "Why should there be a public celebration of a US holiday in Switzerland?" I mean "open to the public," or at least to us Americans who are stuck here without their families. Surely I'm not the only one?
