Happy Thanksgiving…a few days early!

21 Nov

Okay, let me address a few things to set the record straight:

1. Thanksgiving is NOT celebrated in Sweden…because the pilgrims didn’t settle here, the settled on PLYMOUTH ROCK in the United States of America.

2. We celebrated Thanksgiving this past Sunday because a. I have to work on Thursday and would have ZERO time to make Thanksgiving dinner and b. We will be seeing Joachim’s mom and grandma this weekend so I won’t have time then either.

3. As you will see in my pictures, there’s one thing missing…the turkey!! My mom tells this story-I’m still not sure if it’s true or if it’s just a cop-out because she doesn’t want to make a turkey every year- about when my sister and I were younger, she went to all this trouble to make this very nice turkey for Thanksgiving, stuffed the damn thing and all. Unfortunately, when she placed it on the table, Lindsay and I took one look at the bird and both started hysterically crying. I’m still not sure if it was because of this huge dead bird in front of us or maybe my mom just burnt the hell out of it (i think it was option a) but to this day my family just has turkey breast and ham on the big day. Also, if you know anything about me, it scares the living daylights out of me to eat anything straight off the bone (feels too cannibalistic to me) so we just have a nice little ham sitting at the end of the table 🙂

So, I hope I have answered all of the looming questions and will thus bless you with the great pictures I took of our feast.

–Someone watches a little too much Dexter…

And poor baby Enzo fell into a sleep coma after all that turkey ham!!

So there you have it, my FIRST ever Thanksgiving that I made by myself…in Sweden…where they don’t even celebrate Thanksgiving…and I didn’t even have a turkey. Oh c’mon, give me a break!!
