I hadn’t the chance to celebrate Thanksgiving with an American family, but I enjoyed an amazing multicultural-Thanksgiving. Therefore, we had a diverse choice of food from different countries: Turkey, America, and France.
The Appetizer – Turkish Lintel Soup:
In order to contribute to our Friends-Giving celebration, I was responsible for the appetizer. I made a Turkish lentil soup, which is made of green lentils, onions, carrots, and noodles. I was so glad that everyone liked the soup. As a side I’ve cut Kohlrabi. Kohlrabi is a vegetable and is well known in Germany.
Josh, our American friend, was responsible for the main dish, the turkey. He did the filling separately, so everyone could decide which filling he/she wants to have as a side. I have to admit that the turkey was very delicious. As filling, he offered Brussels spread, potatoes, and corn bread. It was divine. Nothing can describe the delicious taste. Thank you Josh for the incredible tasting turkey!
Here we go: dessert number 1. Of course, the French cheese cannot be absent, or do you know what else works with a good red wine?
What may not be missing at the end? Yes, cheesecake! I have to say the cheesecake was not the only 2nd sweet desert. We also had pecan pie… You can imagine that we’ve overeaten, however, once you are allowed to treat yourself very well.
Last but not least, we played board games. The most exciting game is, as known, Jenga. Especially when you had a lot of wine and your hands are very shaky, it is very hard to hold up the building.
Thanksgiving was originally a day when people celebrated the end of the harvest and thanked God for it.
For what are you thankful?
