Food, London

Our big family (of 15!) cooked the most adorable Thanksgiving any American spending the holiday in Britain could hope for ❤ We all set up in one kitchen and had turkey, two kinds of stuffing, green beans, sweet potatoes and mashed, two kinds of salad, gravy, cranberry sauce, various red and white wines, asparagus, baguettes, garlic bread, centerpieces, and flatmate love! For dessert, there were mud pies, apple pie, pumpkin pie, vanilla ice cream, and mulled wine ❤ So sad to have missed out on the Connecticut festivities and Mommy’s stuffing and gravy, but I think we did a very good job for ourselves.


Geeky Obsessions, London

No big story for today. Went to work till six and ate too many McVitie’s Hobnobs. Then came home and had a nice long, much-needed chat with my boy, who never ceases to amaze me ❤ And then I ate pasta and tried to persuade Antoine to travel with me to Wales. Then talked with the parents about London LIFE before bed. Hopefully tomorrow proves a much more exciting day—Guy Fawkes day! Which I TOTALLY forgot about. Bonfires and fireworks to come. And pictures to flaunt. Night.
