Thanksgiving in Milan

Despite some setbacks early in the evening, Thanksgiving in Milan actually turned out quite well. At the last minute Tim and I decided to try our hands at making stuffing from scratch (which turned out surprisingly well), and our rotisserie chickens really stepped up to the plate as convincing (though small) turkeys. Tim and I also made sweet potatoes, corn, and peas. Nisha and Stephanie added asparagus, mashed potatoes, carrots, and dessert. Everything tasted great. This was Stephanie's first Thanksgiving (since she's from England) and, given the circumstances, I think we did a good job. Especially with no oven, and almost no planning.

It might not look like much, but there were only four of us. And we had leftovers of almost everything.

The whole gang

As dinner music, it was suggested we play the Team America soundtrack through my iPod speakers. "It's an American Holiday," we thought. "Why not some America-loving music?" We thought better of it, though, and just played a Chopin/Bach/Mozart playlist in the background.
