Thursday Thirteen #6

Thirteen Things about Juliadamus

Although I'm not American, we do have a Thanksgiving party at our house. We would be watching the games anyway, so why not have some friends over here for dinner.
We've been doing this for a couple of years now, and if there's any tradition to it, then it's me, grabbing my purse and keys, hurrying to the store, last-minute-shopping all the stuff for the dinner.
That's why I have to make this a quick one today ;)

So first of all here's my twelve things I still have to get for the dinner tonight:

1. Red Wine - most likely some Cabernet Sauvignon

2. Cinnamon Sticks - for the cranberry sauce

3. Cranberries - well, that's obvious, right?

4. Camembert - the turkey replacement for the veggies, served breaded and fried

5. Pumpkin - we'll have it as a soup

6. Carrots - for the pumpkin soup

7. Ginger - goes into the soup as well

8. Coconut Milk - also for the soup

9. a Lemon - well, have a guess ... yes it's for the soup

10. Bacon - for the stuffing

11. Parsley - hmm, I like my stuffing with lots of parsley

12. Turkey - yeah I know I'm late! I told you so!

And number thirteen will be me, wishing everybody a Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving, Julia.

Did you see the bacon covered turkey on my page? It's a Southern thing that any bacon-lover would understand.

The soup sounds yum-o like the Ray-tard would say.

Thanks for stopping by my shits and giggles edition.

Canadian or not ... Happy Turkey Day anyway.

Julia said...

kate: yes I did, and it was a great success, everybody loved the pumpkin soup!

noner: well, it's a soup and a main course, not too sophisticated I think? maybe a bit different ;)

raggedy:You're welcome :-* And, well, of course I put wine in the food, for example in Sauce Bolognese!

ddbg: Please don't talk about food anymore *burps*
