one of Amanda's friends iced this cake to be a perfect replica of the american flag, cute hey?
This weekend, my lovely yoga friend Amanda hosted a thanksgiving in July dinner party. She's from Chicago and figured that celebrating thanksgiving while it's cold outside makes more sense than waiting until November when it's boiling. So she made the most authentic thanksgiving feast: turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, and pumpkin pie.
My contribution: cornbread muffins. And boy oh boy is it hard to explain cornbread to
Aussies :) Pumpkin pie is equally perplexing; most Aussies seem to expect it to be savoury and when they realize it's sweet they either love it or hate it. Of course, I love it and I love finding ways of adapting traditions with my fellow expats!
