Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! (better late than never)

Of course we don’t get the day off for this American holiday and I spent most of my week out here:

But we were still able to pull together a pretty classic Thanksgiving, with everything made from scratch! And we’re never going back. This food was ridiculously delicious (no more cream of mushroom soup for me).Image

We had a chicken, green been casserole, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, pumpkin pie, apple pie and cookies. Delicious! And you know what we even did? We even fried the crispy onions for the top of the green bean casserole and I am in danger of making these every day just to snack on – they were so easy and delicious.

These pictures are less than amazing because the lighting in our apartment is dismal and this is from my phone, but I feel like we need to prove that we DID make and eat all this delicious food!

And what are we thankful for? 2 years of marriage this past week (!), our life here in Western Kenya, our families (even though they are far away), and all the support and love that has helped us to pursue this adventure together – so thanks to all of you!
