Thanksgiving

Today we hosted a small Thanksgiving dinner at our house. Our dear friend, Rhonda, came down from the capitol of Honduras - an 8 hour drive to join us. We also had another dear friend, Matt, came over and brought a young boy he works with who lives in the dump. Madison invited her dear friend from school, Rudy - this was her first Thanksgiving food. She found much of it good, much of it strange, and some she flat-out wouldn't eat. Our team mates the McCann's and their two girls were here - 11 of us in all. And BOY did we have quite a spread! Fun times indeed. We then finished out our evening by watching Charlie Brown's Thanksgiving! AWESOME day!

The Spread...


All enjoying the feast.

Sounds like a great day! I'm curious...what did Rudy flat-out refuse to eat? About 8-9 years ago I was in Tegus for Thanksgiving and made a traditional American meal for my Honduran friends. They seemed to like it all. Turkey was a definate hit!

I thought it was interesting that EVERYONE (about 20 people) left the cranberries and a cranberry salad on the table. When I asked about it they said they would go back for it for dessert. My explanation that it was part of the meal and dessert was still in the frig didn't convince anyone to eat it with the meal. Many took some with dessert and many liked it.

Cindy - she tried the cranberries - said no way! We also had creamcheese/salsa for chips - thought that was weird, and cheese cake - there was no way she was going to eat a cake made from cheese :-) But - she loved everything else!
