And it is ON!
Thanksgiving is on! Woot!
I have been babbling about hosting a Thanksgiving party for ages now. After four years of missing it - I am keen on not letting this one slip me by. My close friends are a perfect mix of German, Swiss, French and Italian folk who have no idea what it all means. The day after I after I proudly procured a pumpkin (and I will have you know, this is not such an easy feat when you live in downtown Zurich) I texted my pals - "the Harvest Feast is on! We will even have pumpkin pie," I shared excitedly, for everyone knows that it is not thanksgiving if there is not pumpkin pie.
"Uhm, you make pie out of pumpkins?" said one friend rather sceptically. "You sure you don't mean soup?"
Funny how you assume some things. Such as everyone must know that pumpkin pie is a must-do fall sort of thing. But they do not.
But the real cool thing is that they do not have turkey much over here either. In fact, I have yet to find a place where I can preorder it just for this dinner, but I will. However, that means my friends have no idea what a 'turkey coma' is either. I cannot help but giggle a little at that thought alone...
