Thanksgiving Abroad

This year we're spending Thanksgiving on our own in London, but luckily we have a few of our best friends and family here to celebrate with us, so it feels a bit like home! I also have a couple days off so I can spend more time nesting and cooking and Skyping. Now normally they don't carry turkeys regularly here until Christmas, but I was able to order one through Whole Foods which was very exciting. And after one big shopping trip at Waitrose (kind of like Safeway) this Wednesday, we should have everything we need to prepare a proper Thanksgiving, including canned pumpkin from my friend Erica!

Over the past week, I've been scouring food websites for Thanksgiving inspiration and have come across some delicious recipes and fabulous table settings that I wanted to share. Hope you're all having fun preparing for your feast!

Pumpkin Table Setting
Casual Autumn Table
Assorted Cheese, Baguette and Grapes
William Sonoma's Rolled Stuffed Turkey Breast
Homemade Cranberry Sauce
Sage and Onion Stuffing
Roasted Garlic Green Beans
Classic Pumpkin Pie
Jamie Oliver's Mulled Wine

Will update on how our meal turns out soon...here's hoping for a perfect turkey! But if all else fails, we can always fall back on the side dishes and lots of wine (and mulled wine, a new favourite of mine). 

Happy eating!
