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.
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.
Thank you for everything!
Thank you Esra!!
Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! It all looks great. Sharing with friends is what the day is all about.
So true Joy, so true!!
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 . . .
. . looked to me like a terrific effort – and friends is where it is at!
Yes, love a good party.
Happy past Thanksgiving, loved your photos! Very special to be able to share with family and friends, glad you had a good one:)
Thank you Ozlem! And happy holidays to you!
