keep calm & cranberry on


Nothing was going to stop me from celebrating Thanksgiving this year. I wanted - no needed - the turkey, the stuffing, the cranberry sauce, the chance to break out my thanksgiving themed napkins and of course my beloved turkey platter.  I have lots to be thankful for so I was feeling the holiday spirit - I even printed out decorations, found a 'Keep Calm & Cranberry On' sign and baked pumpkin pie from scratch. Luckily my Australian friends fully embrace celebrating American holidays and so we settled on a date (three weeks early but who cares) that worked for everyone and let the feasting begin. It was non-traditional to say the least but most importantly the food was plenty, everyone had a fun and in true family style we even managed to all fit around the table.
