Thanksgiving; the time of year when 280 million turkeys are eaten across the United States. After eating succulent roast turkey, I can now understand why so many are eaten! They are simply delicious!
Thanksgiving rolled around and so did the freezing temperatures in Charlotte, NC, which got way down to -2 degrees! As others were complaining about the weather, I was loving it! I was finally able to pull out the coat I had bought from Gap many moons ago. On top of being able to wear my beloved trench coat, we were also able to get cozy and drink hot apple cider. It doesn’t get much better than that! Well so I thought…
For Thanksgiving lunch we were fortunate enough to eat at a spectacular Country Club. It is safe to say that after this meal we weren’t hungry for days! We ate piles and piles of food, which ultimately made us feel ill, but in a good way of course.
I won’t go into detail about everything we ate but I just HAVE to mention the deliciousness of Pumpkin Pie. At first I was a little skeptical, I mean how can pumpkin be in a dessert?! But boy oh boy, it’s the most delicious cinnamon, spicy thing I have ever eaten. Just thinking about it now is making my stomach grumble and my mouth salivate. I can’t help but think I have been deprived of something so special for the last 18 years. It is now my mission to recreate it for my family when I return down under for Christmas break. Everyone has to try Pumpkin Pie in their life, I just hope I do it justice.
Thanksgiving seems like a practice for Christmas day. You eat a ton of food, until you think you actually might explode, with your family and friends. It has made me think that America is doing it right. So Australia, you need to get onto this whole second Christmas thing, known as Thanksgiving.
