Thanksgiving Australian style
we don't celebrate Thanksgiving down here in Australia but since visiting the US a few years ago - I started to have a Thanksgiving dinner with my family in November. This weekend we are having our Thanksgiving dinner. I think everyone has something to be thankful for!!
I usually buy a turkey roll which is the breast of turkey that has been stuffed with cranberry & pinenuts and a ham that I glaze with orange juice and brown sugar.
we all sit down and before we eat, each person is asked to say something that they are grateful for and then grace is said. I also get each person to give the last of the fruit a stir before I make my last fruit cake * I get so excited at this time of year - I can feel the emotion bubbling up inside & at least by celebrating Thanksgiving - I can allow the Christmas spirit to shine
