Happy Turkey Day!

27 Nov

As a born and raised Romanian, I didn’t celebrate Thanksgiving until I moved to the US back in 2003. For a few years the entire family went to my in-laws’ house and enjoyed drool-worthy meals, laughter and being together.

Then, one year I felt courageous enough to invite everyone to our house. My in-laws would come the night before and, with my father in-law’s help, Mr. Turkey would be ready by the time guests would arrive.


This year I was again courageous (leaning towards crazy) and invited everyone over. 25 guests to be exact. My father-in-law thinks I need to learn on my own how to prep a turkey. Luckily I live near In & Out. If you are one of my guests don’t be surprised if you’ll end up eating a burger. Everything is possible.

From my family to yours,

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
