As I mentioned earlier, I love Thanksgiving and look forward to this Holiday with much anticipation. This year this holiday was even more special because as a new American myself, I really observed this Holiday not as a resident who follows the traditions of the country I live in, but as an American. This holiday had much more significance this year than it ever had. I really felt blessed and grateful to have been accepted in this country as one of them. And it almost felt as if it was truly my first Thanksgiving in that I had the opportunity to thank all the one that made it happen, and thank all who supported me all those years.
I would have loved to have hosted the Thanksgiving dinner at my house, but it was at my sister-in-law. All I was in charge of, were appetizers and desserts. Though quite easy to do, they seem to take the longest. I chose to offer stuffed mushrooms and Brie and Cherry Tartlets. For desserts, I wanted to offer traditional Thanksgiving desserts: pumpkin, pecan, chocolate pies but chose to offer a variety of small desserts so that everyone would find something they would like. In turned out, most ate a bit of everything. I was so so glad. My desserts were: White chocolate and pumpkin cheesecake, Pear and Cranberry tart, Dark Chocolate Creme in a shot glass, and Small pecan pies.
