30 Days of Blogging. Day 24, Late Thanksgiving

I've been looking at Thanksgiving meal pictures and reading statuses (stati?) on facebook about leftovers for 2 days now and I have to say it was good to finally get around a table for a sit-down dinner tonight.

There were 6 of us, 3 Americans, 1 Canadian, and 2 Ukrainians.  You can get Turkey here, no problem, but we opted for a couple of whole rotisserie chickens.  We had cranberry sauce, cornbread, mashed potatoes and gravy, corn, dressing, and I made deviled eggs and green bean casserole.

And speaking of Green Bean Casserole.  I found a recipe I liked but it called for a can of Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup and a can of Fried Onion Rings.  Neither of which you can get here.  So I found a recipe for homemade soup and did that last night.  Then I thinly sliced some onion rings and deep fried them to perfection.  PER FEC TION.  It was pretty good if I do say so myself.

Oh, and Pumpkin Pie and Apple Pie, too!

We played cards and laughed and just generally had a good time.

You can fix your gb casserole for us anytime. That sounds good!

I don't know what it is about sitting around playing games after a big Thanksgiving meal, but that is my favorite!!!

This year we all played Catch Phrase. Some years Blokus or Rummicube. Seriously fun and loud!
