Thanksgiving, Not Just for Americans Anymore

My brother, Nathan, and his girlfriend, Hannah, flew to Switzerland to see us over Thanksgiving.  We also celebrated the holiday with: 
our fellow law school travelers, the Bunsons;
our sweet neighbor, Esther; 
Jennifer, one of the wonderful Zellwegers; 
Hannah E., our favorite little Tasmanian law student
and Cole of course.
In case you lost count, that's 12!

 Two pumpkin pies, not beautiful but tasty anyway.


 The hot kitchen was not our friend as we tried to whip cream to top the pies.

The feast:
stuffed turkey breasts, ciabatta hazelnut dressing, green been casserole, turkey gravy, broccoli, garlic mashed potatoes, cranberries, citrus pound cake, and delicious bread

Still whipping

Suzan and I split the cooking and cleaning duties between our two tiny kitchens, four floors apart.  I don't know how we pulled it off, but somehow dinner was served and people were happy.

We had lots of Thanksgiving food items sent from the US.  My mom even thought to send Thanksgiving napkins.

Our whole crew

All in all it was very happy Swiss Thanksgiving!
