I’m posting this a bit late, very late for my household actually. For we had “fakesgiving” instead. Now what is “fakesgiving” you may ask, quite simply Thanksgiving not on Thanksgiving. It started off as a bit of a joke, but it caught on quickly. Being in the UK, means I have to request to have Thanksgiving off of work, and unfortunately this year I couldn’t have it. So instead I took the week before off and my father came to visit and we had Thanksgiving a week early. It didn’t matter so much to us, we spent time with each other and our friends, isn’t that really the best part? Dad and I had a long day cooking, here are the fruits of our labour.
The full table. Flowers kindly given to me by a lovely friend, awesome giant wine glass from John Lewis. Our feast included; pork and crackling, greens, black eyed peas, creamed corn, mashed potatoes (done in a slow cooker), dressing, green bean casserole, mac n cheese, biscuits, cornbread, sweet potato and pecan pies. I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving, who out there took part in Black Friday, and cyber Monday?
