Happy Thanksgiving America! Hope you had a good holiday. I've been in America the last six years and already had my share of delicious Thanksgiving meals. Today I want to share the experience with my fellow foreign friends.

This year we stayed at home and celebrated with the family. It was very warm and cozy.

When we were preparing the holiday meal we had wild turkeys gobbling in the backyard, which was cute and sad at the same time since one of their own was roasting in the oven.

This isn't going to be long, I'm just going to get to the point - food. First is squash rolls, I've been waiting the whole year for them. They are sweet and warm and just plain delicious. The other thing that I never tried before arriving to America is cranberry sauce. It's very traditional dish and goes good with turkey. My mother-in-law has this awesome recipe where she adds nuts and orange peels. Its sour and sweet and just perfect with those sweet rolls. And of course turkey, not my favorite bird to eat, but you can do it once a year.

 For the side dishes we had: corn, mashed potatoes, brussel sprouts, and butternut squash.

Of course you can't have Thanksgiving without stuffing and we also cooked green bean casserole with fried onions on top.

You have to try everything, so after the dinner you pretty much crawl away from the table.

But lets not get ahead of ourselves, after the main course comes dessert, which were pies: apple, and pumpkin, served with ice cream, whip cream and coffee/tea. 

We are more of a jeans family and when we stay at home we don't really dress up. I like to be comfortable, because after the amount of food I devourer the last thing I want is to wear tight pants.

Sweater - Banana Republic, Jeans - Guess.

If anything looked good to you just google it or ask me for our homemade recipe.
