Even though we are out of the states, I still do my best to have a traditional meal. I had alot of practice with it last year and was able to find most everything I needed. I just had to know which stores to go to and where to look. For awhile, I thought I wasn't going to be able to find sweet potatoes, and I was really disappointed because I LOVE those things. About a week before Thanksgiving, they finally showed up at the grocery store in the EXOTICS section. I just think it is so funny that they are considered "exotic", and they are called patate deuce. You learn something new every day...especially here!


It's so interesting to hear how things are different in other countries. Who would think that sweet potatoes are exotic?

Hi, Laurel. Thanks so much for your comment! I agree with Lorraine. It is really, really interesting to learn about different places--especially through food. So cool! :-)


Greg, I am so glad to hear that you will be making a turkey too! I was afraid Jon would not get his turkey leg! Now that you two will not be here for dinner this year, (I will miss you both so much!) I will not know what to do with the legs; Jon is the only one who ate them!!

Ha! How true, Auntie. Though I don't think I'm going to make a whole turkey...probably just the breast.
