Today I'm feeling very grateful to have so many great Canadians here in London with me, and thanking Dani and Hayley for hosting a fantastic Thanksgiving Pot Luck Party last night. Old friends, new friends and strangers all came together last night at a flat just off of Brick Lane to enjoy and celebrate our favourite holiday together. How lucky we were to be in a room filled with incredible chefs! All dishes were homemade and absolutely delicious! For staters we had stuffed mushrooms and an amazing, ginger-infused butternut squash soup. The main included all the much-loved traditional dishes - stuffing, roast chicken (couldn't get a Turkey ANYWHERE!), roast veg, candied yams and cranberry sauce. For dessert we enjoyed a crumble and pumpkin pie cheesecake thanks to Clara who performed a Thanksgiving miracle by tracking down the one and only can of pumpkin pie puree in all of the East End!
Wishing everyone back home and abroad a wonderful, and extra happy thanksgiving this year on 10/10/10! x
