I have lived in Finland for 16 years and only ever once been to a Thanksgiving celebration here. And that was during the second year I lived here. This year, I have finally gotten my act together and I am hosting a Turkey-day celebration in my home!
Mr Siili isn’t too keen on having a 3-4 kilo (6,6-8,8 pound) bird in the house, but I don’t have 20 friends that I would want to invite nor do we have the room for that many. So it looks like I’ll either buy some turkey breasts/legs or frantically freeze what doesn’t get eaten of the whole bird.
Our menu will looks something like the following, as it’s what my family does for Thanksgiving.
oyster balls (stuffing)
corn bread stuffing
candied yams/sweet potatoes
green bean casserole
crudités tray (gherkin sweet pickles, black olives, green olives, stuffed celery, pickled okra)
What’s your favorite dish for Turkey-day? What makes the meal for you?
