Thanksgiving in Boo da Pest

I hope all of you had a safe and delishuss Thanksgiving weekend wif fwiends and family 

We wewe sad to be so faw away fwom evewyone we oosually celebwated wif, but Mommi and Daddi wewe detewmined to have a Thanksgiving dinnew, even though in Boo da Pest, this was just anothew thuwsday 

my favowite cafe still has an outdoow stand even though it's now cold outside, but you can gwab a coffee ow sweet on youw walkies if you want, so we did, on ouw way to the mawket hall

When Mommi found these, she knew that she coold make ouw twadishunal dinnew fow fwiends, she also found sweet potatoes(not oosual hewe), and tuwkey and all the othew Thanksgivingy stuffs

I was called fwom my nap to help in the kitchen and wan wight in...i was weady!

we had six lovely hoomans and Mawci my little Westie fwiend come to dinnew
fow all of them, except fow auntie Juli, this was new and stwange foods, but I think they enjoyed it and got into the spiwit of things

it was a lovely evening and I think a big success fow ouw fiwst evew Boo da Pest 

 Daddi had to be cweative wif the twenty pound tuwkey(the smallest one he found) and ouw tiny oven, but he did it and it was juicy and cwisp all in the wight places
( I of couwse had to taste test evewything..and befowe you say anything, I only had tiny bits and nothing that was dangewoos fow doggies)

 I hope you can see and enjoy my smileybox

I know it's late but Happy Thanksgiving anyway. Didn't Mommi and Daddi do well to find all the ingredients for such a splendid feast, despite our tiny little European ovens. (Gail tells me she couldn't believe the size of all the ovens and fridges and washing machines when she worked in Oklahoma - before then she thought it was only the cars that were bigger in the USA.)
Oh and Asta you do look adorable in your orange ribbon tie - no wonder you were such a hit with Mawcie's Dad.

Sometimes, spending these holidays in faraway places makes them even more special.

Interesting about the turkey. Here in France, it's difficult to find a turkey that's even 15lbs! They're all smaller than that!


Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

Wow! What a feast. Glad you got to try some.

It was just another Thursday, here.

Happy belated Thanksgiving to you and your family, Asta. Mama really liked the smile box but had to play it backwards to see all of the pictures. Silly Mama!

Kaci and I had fun chasing each other around the house. We love to drive Mama crazy.

Love -

Happy Thanksgiving, Miss Asta! It looks like you and your parents had a great time! And OF COURSE you taste-tested everything. I mean, that's a Thanksgiving tradition! We had ham, and we made sure that Mom had cooked it properly. We also checked to make sure her pumpkin pie was up to snuff! (We only had a little bit, but then Dad let us lick the ice cream scooper, so it was all good!)

Everything Thanksgiving should be-- Friends, celebration, good foods, memories in the making, and smiles as your bounty is appreciated! You are so blessed, dear friends, don't ever forget that. Know too, that in the tiny little cormer of America's Southwest, an Army of White Dogs loves you and is SO grateful for your friendship!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

So glad to see you all had such a wonderful Thanksgiving! Your food looks scrumptious as always. (And glad you got to share some Asta-I had turkey sweet potato, mashed potato and even a few small pieces of pumpkin pie)

Loved the music for your smile box!

P.S. We're keeping fingers and paws crossed for you show, Ami! I hope we can have a glimpse or two!

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Hi Miss Asta, we're glad you got to enjoy your Thanksgiving even in Boo da Pest. We don't celebrate of course but it was our brother Paul's birthday and the anniversary of our angel Nana passing away so it was a very special day for us too! Your leftovers looked totally yummy as did all of your food. Thanks for sharing with us. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

Mrs Mac said...

i LOVE YOUR SMILEBOXES! oops caps lock sorry.

Your Thanksgiving meals are like what we have for Christmas here.

We wanted to get a couple of days to Europe to visit a Christmas market, maybe Bruges or even BUDAPEST! But it wasn't to be, as my mum doesn't have a passport and we wouldn't get one in time :(

We have booked for Xmas away in the New Forest here instead. But I Was looking forward to going abroad :( and I wanted to come and give you smoochies. Never mind. It will have to be next year, ok?!!!

Meanwhile, please give your Ma a happy birthday hug from me as i think it is her birthday on 27th- yes? Or maybe i am wrong. If so I am sorry for making her a year older prematurely!!

Cafe Alibi? Lacie begins to giggle...well, they DID have a fun night there....

Hey Asta...that lady picture on the wall of the Cafe sorta looks like your mom!!!!

As for your feast...OMD...it looked fabulous!!!

As for the boning of the turkey, I am NEVER getting on your Dad's bad side.

Oh, can you please talk to Bessie. I have tried to tell her she is a DAIRY COW, not a BEEF COW...but she's convinced she's going to be boned and shoved in your oven for Christmas Roast Beast. Do NOT touch the best Schlag producer in Europe. Sheesch.

Hope you mom had a spectacular barkday...I am totally covered in cake, frosting, ice cream and Schlag...none on my hips, however.
