Happy Thanksgiving!

This year will be my first time hosting a Thanksgiving. We're far from home, but my husband and I work for an American university here in Strasbourg, so we're hosting the students, some of their family members, and a couple of other staff members at our house for an American Thanksgiving. The total number (so far) will be 32 people. Phew!

Luckily, it's a potluck, but we're providing the turkey, ham, and a couple of apple tarts. I have a lot to do to prepare since somehow we have to fit all of those people in our apartment! My to-do list looks like a battle plan, and I'm happily about 1/2 way through. Tomorrow, my little munchkin has been invited to a play date with a neighbor, so I'm going to take advantage of the time and take the tram out to a supermarket. (I live in the city center, so there are a few markets, but none of them are big enough to carry everything I need.)

Tomorrow I find out if the 8 kilo turkey will fit into our oven. We had to special order the turkey. And because we're the only ones with an oven in our apartment, the oven will need to be used on T-Day for dishes other than turkey. My mom has given me a recipe to cook the turkey on low overnight, so we'll see how that turns out!

Good luck to all of you cooking and hosting Thanksgiving this year!
