Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Lucky me, once again I get treated to a Thanksgiving meal by friends.  I was asked to bring my popular Apfelstrudel, which my dear friends first had the night they fell in love many, many years ago.  Of course I happily obliged.  It will be the Austrian touch to an all American holiday meal.  It is so different from the Austrian Thanksgiving, which I have shared with you before here.  However, after almost three decades in the United States Thanksgiving has become a welcome holiday for me too.  Although I don’t spend it with family like most, my close friends are just like family to me.

Wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving, and may it be blessed with love, cheer and great food.
