Thanksgiving is such a special time. It is almost like Christmas in that you spend time with your friends and closed ones, but it is better because you don’t have the pressure of gift giving and everything that comes along. During Thanksgiving, you are reminded to appreciate your blessings ( and believe me I feel blessed everyday to be living here in the United States), you are enjoying great food, and you are spending time with the people you love. Though, it is also a difficult time for me because I am so far away from my native family, I enjoy this holiday very much. In fact I love Thanksgiving! I have embraced this American Holiday with its traditions with my whole heart. I decorate my house, I venture to learn recipes with ingredients that used to be foreign to me such as pecans and cinnamon. Yes, Thanksgiving is of course not celebrated in France, so we don’t have those family dinners with pumpkins pies, ham and dressing;-) It has been fun learning to taste all those things and learning to make them as well. Well for those who read me, you must know that I love to cook, and I will take any opportunity to cook, and offer cooking class. Yesterday, I had a Children’s Cooking Class. Though, we were not very many, we had lots of fun! We made cupcake turkeys, pigs in a pilgrim hats, corns in husk, Chocolate Pilgrim Hats, and Cheese and Grape Turkeys. Not only did children learn to make those items on their own, they also ate them or took them home. I hope you will join us next time;-) Until then,
Bon Appetit and Happy Cooking!!!
