eating more of our 19lb turkey..
i made a big batch of stock
and a turkey and rice soup.

and stuffing sandwiches 
on our favorite baguettes.

a dinner party.

  1. I'm guessing the top one is your final Christmas pic. It's wonderful!
    Glad you were able to find American food to celebrate Thanksgiving abroad.

  2. Pam, I love reading your blog. Not sure if I said this before, but it is like a flashback to my life 13 years ago. We lived in Denmark for 3 years (I remember finding my american food store, Americana), have taken almost your exact Italy trip, and I torture my family each year with a tripod to get that perfect Christmas card. I feel like reading your blog is like visiting an old friend. Enjoy Christmas in Paris. That's on my bucket list.

  3. That is such a great pic of all of you!
