I hope you’re all having a lovely holiday… unless you’re not from Canada, in which case HA HA!!!
I travelled to Seoul with a group of friends on Saturday. We went our seperate ways during the day, then met at the Grand Hilton for the Canadian Chamber of Commerce’s Thanksgiving Dinner. As you can tell from the title, it wasn’t as cozy as home, but there was some fabulous turkey and all the usual fixin’s (if you count fully dressed salmon as a usual Thanksgiving fixin.) Many of the Canucks present brought Korean friends with them, and you could hear explanations down the buffet line. “That’s the turkey…yes, it’s really a bird that big. It’s like a giant chicken.” “Those are brussel sprouts… don’t take any.” “Oh! Beets! Like we used to have at Grandmas. Don’t get the juice on you”. etc. etc.
On Sunday, we had ANOTHER dinner for 7 or 8 of us who wanted to pitch in to whip something up. The atmosphere was much closer to ‘homelike’, but there was no turkey…
I followed up a fabulous Thanksgiving weekend (the weather was also perfect) with a flu shot today. Now my arm hurts. ouch.
I hope y’all had a great Thanksgiving, and loved ones nearby to share it (and the leftovers) with.
