Cowart's Common Room
Thanksgiving Dinner

Fennie has suggested that we all join in a Thanksgiving Dinner next Thursday . . . which is a lovely idea . . . any volunteers to put up and host the post . . . perhaps everyone could do research and come to dinner with a Thanksgiving dish and a fact about Thanksgiving . . . just a thought . . . open to any ideas and volunteers.

What time would suit everyone best . . .

Fennie's Avatar Once - a very long time ago - in London, some American students held a Thanksgiving dinner in a little flat somewhere and invited me. It was such a jolly and intimate affair - quite different to Christmas. I seem to remember sitting on the floor, amid lots of laughter and eating turkey - or was it pumpkin? Perhaps both. Anyway, any excuse for a celebration. But perhaps this should be led by one of our Transatlantic Cooers. Maybe we could persuade Frances to give us an authentic taste of New York on the last Thursday of November.

Westerwitch's Avatar I was lucky enough to go to a friends Thanksgiving Dinner when I was in Montana . . . it was a fabulous day and brilliant food . . . still not keen on pumkin pie though.

Anyway fingers crossed that someone fancies hosting a Thanksgiving Dinner on PC . . . I would do it, but may be up to my eyes preparing for our Edinburgh Craft Fair.

Blackbird's Avatar I love the idea of Thanksgiving Dinner with all of you but the thing about the real dinner is that it's a lot of work. We're having the dinner at my mother's but I do much of the cooking here and then take it over. That keeps me from having to clean house too on top of cooking and baking. I'll post our dinner menu over in the food and wine forum to give you some ideas of what to fix.

Fennie's Avatar Thanks Blackbird.

How about if everyone - so far as possible - cooked a 'Blackbird' dinner that day? Then we could all experience the same thing.
