turkey on the barbie

i celebrated a fun thanksgiving this year.   the day brought together a canadian friend and a few aussies and we decided to mix a few standard cultural food items into the meal.

turkey on the barbie happened!  i was skeptical at first, i admit, but it turned out to be delicious!

and in true aussie form, a redback spider crawled right up on the BBQ minutes after the bird went in.

we enjoyed a few drinks in the warm sunshine between preparing dishes and playing bocce ball in the yard

and then the feast really began!

my biggest task this year was convincing the aussies that pumpkin pie is a sweet dessert and not like a savoury veggie pie you would eat for dinner.   it was a success, as we ate it without any photos!   but i admit, it was hard to top the sweet yumminess of the pavlova!

happy thanksgiving!
