We continued our NZ tradition of sharing Thanksgiving with a few expats. New friends Brian and Emily joined less new friends Neil and Dan on Saturday for a traditional menu dinner. It was nice to be in our own home surrounded by our own pictures and stuff this year.
It’s actually easier to cook the meal here because we’re all nostalgic for the basics… so no need to research the latest twist on dressing or cranberry relish.
The turkey came out looking beautiful but was sadly a little tough. There was plenty of gravy to make it all work.
Much to be thankful for even as we worry about whether the new omicron variant will derail the impending arrival of a new normal.
