Thanksgiving is one of the American holidays that I miss the most. Since moving to Sweden 5 years ago, we haven’t celebrated Thanksgiving. But this year, for my mothers birthday (which falls on the 3rd of November) my sister and I decided to make a Thanksgiving birthday dinner. We made turkey with stuffing (the turkeys in Sweden are without steroids, so are quite smaller). The biggest turkey I could find was about slightly over 4 kilos. We also made sweet potatoes, with brown sugar and marshmallows, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, and strawberry jello with :bananas, and of course gravy. For dessert we had apple pie a la mode. My sister set a beautiful table:
At dinner, we all went around and said what we were thankful for. Most of all, my sister and I were thankful for my mother, for each other, and that we all could be together. I am so thankful for my family, and Gods blessings.
