Thanksgiving in Paris (Deux)…

Standard

It was our second year in Paris for Thanksgiving.  If you have been reading for a while, you will remember the huge, elaborate Thanksgiving we created last year.  This year…not so much.  One day, while dining at Breakfast in America, we came across this….:

I am not going to say it was better or worse than last year, but it sure was easier!  We had the turkey, the potatoes, the gravy, the stuffing, the dinner rolls, the cranberry sauce, the pie, and even….THE FOOTBALL!  We did not have to figure out how to make broccoli casserole without broccoli.  Or haul our freshly baked dishes up the side of a mountain to get to the party.  All-in-all…it was a great way to spend our last Thanksgiving here.  Bon Ap and I hope you all had a very Happy Thanksgiving!

We even had cute name cards at our table...!

And the group that helped make 2011 Thanksgiving special this time! From left: McCarney, Fern, Justin, Me, Daniel, and Jeremy. Turns out, I think Jeremy might try to bring Thanksgiving to France. This is his second year and he seems to enjoy it!
