An American Thanksgiving
Posted October 31st, 2011 - 5:38 pm by from San Francisco, United States (Permalink)
Hello CSers,

Wanted to put some feelers out there to see if anyone would be interested in an American Thanksgiving celebration in the end of November. I'll be in South Africa for 6 weeks and am as happy as a clam about it...but this means I miss Thanksgiving! I'm determined to celebrate anyway, complete with pumpkin pie, mashed potatoes, American football, and unlimited wine. I figure we could do a pot-luck style, but I'm happy to cook a few of the essentials (sans Turkey, as I'm veggie, but am happy to share my mom's legendary recipe with another who wants to tackle that beast-pun intended). I don't know the size of my apartment yet, so can't guarantee that I can be the host, but if worse comes to worse, we can party in a park.

I would suggest early afternoon Saturday, November 26. Thanksgiving is really on a Thursday, but I figure most people have work.

Let me know if you have interest!

Peace and turkeys,

Hi Nicole!

Great Idea and I would love to join. It feels still a bit to early to think on Christmay, Thanksg. etc. but I am a fan of having lots of people together who just join cooking, eating, talking an being in a group.
Please keep me updated how u will organize it and what we could do?
Look forward to it!
