Thanksgiving in Taiwan

November 28th, 2013 · 3 Comments

We found a local restaurant that provides authentic Thanksgiving Day dinners, so Gisele, Devon and I got our ration of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberries and pie. No silky chocolate pie, of course, but apple and pumpkin. Everything was really quite good. Devon said it was his first Thanksgiving dinner in three years.

It still wasn’t quite the same as being home with the extended family, but a lot better than nothing.

When the food came we dug in so enthusiastically that it was half gone before anyone thought to take a picture. I won’t ruin your appetite with the pictures we then took of half eaten plates.

    Given that Thanksgiving came earlier for you than the rest of us, thanks to being on the other side of the International Date Line, you got to enjoy it before we did! Glad you were able to have the traditional meal.

    We missed you at our table, and we’ll save some chocolate pie for you if you want. Oh, wait, too late!!

    I am expecting pecan pralines at Christmastime, and, of course, more chocolate pie.
