The belated Thanksgiving dinner happened last night with my buddy Kayla and her dad and sister. They were the substitute family this year since I couldn’t be with my own kin.
The menu was decided by the size of the oven; there was no turkey for us because there were none small enough to fit in my Parisian sized oven. So, chicken it was! Other dishes included: homemade stuffing, garlic mashed potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes, asparagus, and a massive homemade cheesecake (WITH NO CRACKS IN IT!)
I’ll have to wait for Christmas for the fried turkey and jellied cranberry sauce.
After the meal, I took my new family on a tour of Montmartre. The weather was amazing… temperatures in the 50s, a few tiny clouds that opened to a few visible stars, and a slight wind. We went by Moulin de la Galette, the little vineyard, Place du Tertre, the Sacre-Coeur, and then a walk down to the métro at Pigalle.
It was a super nice evening, but it’s tough to beat a Thanksgiving in Mississippi.
