Kiwi Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving 2006Thanksgiving is one of the American holidays that we enjoy most. Tonight we celebrated Thanksgiving in NZ with our neighbours (the Meyers) and a couple of friends (the Russells). Our neighbour and I planned to have a joint Thanksgiving dinner a couple of weeks ago. Everything was quite relaxed, and no fuss. Fiona made scalloped potatoes, peas, asparagus and a beautiful center peace for the table; Ngaira made dinner rolls, apple pie, and kiwi roasted chicken with stuffing, and I made roast chicken (American Turkey trimmings), pumpkin pie and mulled apple cider. The Meyers offered their house for the occasion. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, we ate to our heart’s content. The food was delicious, and the company was most enjoyable. It is wonderful to be able to share an American tradition here in New Zealand. (Including our own tradition of forgetting to serve the cranberry sauce four years running 🙂 )
