"Mom" forgot to order the turkey (kalkoen) , so we had baked chicken (kip) instead - which was fine with us because we love chicken. We had lots of little nibbles of the chicken on our Thanksgiving plates. ;o)
Our "family" (gezin) also had:
Cornbread stuffing (maisbroodvulling) with Calvados soaked currants (krenten)
Homemade cranberry compote (Amerikaanse veenbessencompote)
Tiny potatoes (kleine aardappeltjes)
String beans and carrots (sperciebonen en wortelen)
Spicy pumpkin cupcakes with cinnamon cream cheese icing (kruidige pompoentaartjes met kaneelroomkaassuikerglazuur <-Yes! that's one long word, that is very Dutch! Eventually, you get used to it. )
"Mom" spent all day in the kitchen (de keuken) and we didn't bother her at all ... we behaved this time... we are little furry angels, you know!?! ;o) Well, there was chicken to be had, we're not stupid - wij zijn niet stom. hee hee!
Here are some photos of the food and pen & ink with watercolors that our "mom" did ... from our American Thanksgiving in the Netherlands ... yummm.
After everyone around the table expressed what they were thankful for, "mom" said; "Eet smakelijk!" (bon appetit, tasty eating, tuck in, dig in, etc.), and so we did.
We are very thankful for being so well cared for by our humans.
We hope you found something to be thankful for as well.
Beste wensen, (best wishes)
