Happy Thanksgiving, Everybody November 21, 2007

This is an real conversation which Kikki and I actually had Monday.

Kikki: Since I’m the first person in my family to be born in America, we don’t really do thanksgiving. We just sort of use it as yet another excuse to get together and drink wine.
Me: What do you think an American thanksgiving is?
Kikki: Well. You have pilgrims. It’s different.

Have a safe and happy drunken pilgrim day.

    We may not be drunk but the desserts have already begun!

    Who needs a turkey when you’ve got pie!! 🙂

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Then a “dessert wine” (Grease) would be the perfect holiday fare!

    We came close — skipped the whole turkey menu except the pies and ice cream, finding the 2007 Beaujolais nouveau not bad, not bad at all (Independence Day)
    Then instead of leftovers, we grilled really good meat Friday, with lots more wine:

    Retired Briton Suzie Cook meanwhile gave this year’s vintage her thumbs up.

    “It’s better this year than last year, it’s sweeter,” said Suzie Cook.

    Benjamin Senechal, a student from Lyon, said that although the brand did not “figure among the great wines, it makes for great parties.”

    He expressed surprise at the eclectic turnout, saying: “One meets Russians, Koreans, Germans, Japanese … it’s mind-blowing in a village like this.”

    And this power of story is tasty too, a “tradition” that every year is NEW! I prefer this as a “new year” celebration to New Year’s itself, because with Beaujolais Nouveau there is no moping and mourning over the end of last year’s vintage, just excitement and fun to share the new together. And yet no puritan-like resolutions to stop enjoying life!
