Our massive Italian Thanksgiving was a huge success. As all the locals predicted, it snowed that Saturday morning, making me think that winter is going to be pretty punctual this year. There were about 28 people in attendance at our boss’ lovely country house – it was very rustic and warm, perfect for our Turkey Day theme.
Here are some of the photos, but there’s no way I can fully get across just how much food there was that day. The turkey was 6 or 7 kilos, to start (so at least 13 pounds). We then had sweet potatoes with walnuts and gorgonzola; home-made bread and biscuits; green-bean casserole; two types of stuffing; brussel sprouts with pancetta and apple; some typical Cremaschi dishes; baked fennel; mashed potatoes; gravy. And then let’s not even talk about dessert (cheesecakes, sweet potato pie, fruit salad, etc).
Now I understand why the original Thanksgiving lasted three days.
