Happy Thanksgiving!

Even though it's just an ordinary Thursday in Switzerland, I'm still trying to create a little Thanksgiving spirit around here.

I know it's not quite the same as an American Thanksgiving dinner, but we ARE going to have some turkey, sweet potatoes, and Brussels sprouts.

I'd have no problem grilling a whole turkey, IF I COULD FIND ONE!!! Sure, I could have ordered a fresh one at the butcher a couple of weeks ago, but why bother just for the two of us. In a couple of weeks they'll start appearing in the grocery stores, and I'll buy a couple to stick in the freezer for later use.

In the meantime, turkey Schnitzel, sweet potatoes, and frozen Brussels sprouts will have to do. But I sure will miss eating the Pope's nose.

Can I buy a bag full of frozen ones somewhere?

Hmmm... Turkey and Sweet Potatoes, that sounds normal... Brussel Sprouts? Somehow my wife also chose that for our Thanksgiving in CH supper (we are arrived here via Canada --> America --> Switzerland). Odd.

I didn't feel like making a green bean casserole.

Haha! I had to click on your link to find out what "Pope's Nose" was, since I had NOOOO idea!!! Your Thanksgiving looks festive... I'm sure the Pilgrims ate shellfish and not cranberry sauce for there first Thanksgiving dinner, anyhow..
Hope yours was a great one...
