Thanksgiving Success

Thanksgiving 2102

Ankara.

It was fabulous!

Below are my photos of what happens when you share a beloved American holiday with 20 others, mostly Turks, and most of whom lived in the U.S. at some point.  They get it.  They know how to enjoy it.

Two turkeys, Mushroom & Chestnut Stuffing, Cranberry Sauce, Creamed Onions, Aysegul’s Scalloped Potatoes, Balsamic Glazed Brussel Sprouts, Jalapeno Cornbread, Braised Carrots, and Autumn Roasted Medley. Not pictured: Beyza’s Toronto Maple Leeks and Sweet Potato Puree

Candle lit Veggie Tray with Blue Cheese. Not pictured? An absolutely yummy cheese selection by Beyza.

Apple Tart, 2 Pumpkin Pies, Dilek’s chocolate & walnut balls. Aysel Hoca’s Asure Pudding not pictured.

Even Lucky enjoyed the evening . . .

This year, Baris & I agree that we are very thankful for our wonderful friends.  We are both lucky and are grateful that many of them could join us last evening.  We also specifically thank that group for the appetizers, side dishes & desserts, for the wine, flowers & gifts, for the huge help in the kitchen and in carving the turkey, and for an evening full of laughter and happiness.

Happy Thanksgiving & Happy Teachers’ Day!!

  1. It was a wonderful evening. Thanks a lot for everything.
    On our way back home, Kemal’s comment was this: “Theresa is full of wonders. She is a great cook, she is so fun to spend time together, and she is beautiful.” He adores you .

    • Sibel, it was really great to have you there! Kemal is my little darling! Although I am not sure about the “great cook” – he told me he was very surprised that the veggie dip was blue cheese and the cornbread had jalapenos! LOL. I told him to trust me . . .

  2. Hi Terry! Sorry I’m late in seeing and now commenting on your beautiful Thanksgiving. You had a wonderful time, everyone looks happy and the food delicious 🙂
