Plus, all of you facebookers posting pictures of your turkey dinners, Christmas trees, and families didn't help with my homesickness :-P

Keith went to an international high school in Jakarta and several of his class mates now live in London. They were all there for dinner, and for nearly all of them it was their first Thanksgiving meal ever!
The food was so crazy good! My mouth is watering just thinking about it...one of the best Thanksgiving meals I have ever had! Not a single dish was missed...we had turkey (duh), mashed potatoes, green beans, stuffing, mac and cheese, corn bread, and one of the most delicious sweet potato casseroles I have ever had (and that is saying a lot, since I bake sweet potatoes all the time. But there is something that can be said about sweet potatoes covered in brown sugar, with marshmallows drowning in them). The wine seemed to be limitless, as well, which is a good thing when A. It's Thanksgiving and you're 6 time zones away from home and B. You don't drive! Also, we had pumpkin pie and gingerbread cake! Not to mention a bunch of cheese and olives that I devoured while waiting for the turkey. Ohhh how I wish I scooped up some leftovers while nobody was looking!

It was so, so very kind of the Turner family to host Thanksgiving at their flat. We will NEVER forget our first Thanksgiving abroad and are so thankful for that delicious meal and great company!
