Desperate English Housewife in Washington, chapter 531

The Last Thanksgiving Supper

Well, that’s our last Thanksgiving done. And we got to spend it proper American-stylie πŸ™‚

This is what we ate (I can’t remember the names of some of the stuff, but it tasted amazeballs!)

This with chestnuts

Sprouts, obviously

This. With asparagus and egg.

How about that for a selection of pies!

Today feels a little like Boxing Day back home. It’s a ‘walking day’ (that’s what we’d do in the UK πŸ™‚ ). But it’s Black Friday, which means everyone’s at the mall buying stuff that’s on sale (sales also happen on Boxing Day too though, to be fair!). I hear that in the UK it’s gone a bit Black Friday crazy. What?! Why?! You don’t even have Thanksgiving the day before!! Anyway, if this means the UK is adopting Black Friday, then I think the US should adopt Boxing Day, because it just doesn’t exist here, and at least people would know what Harry was on about when he says his birthday is on Boxing Day…!

Will we do Thanksgiving back in the UK? Probably not. We don’t get the day off! I’ll miss this holiday.

Poor old English

I read an amusing book last night about how the Americans defended themselves against us Englishers around 1812 on the Eastern Shore, in a town called St Michaels.

This was the final chapter….

And thus history is complete ;)

    You should take a trip to St Michaels (not the shop with those labels!) if you haven’t been – so pretty!

    Only in America do people go out on Black Friday and fight one another for sale items the day after they celebrated being thankful for the things they already have! Yay USA! πŸ™‚
