Thanksgiving – The dinner
Thanksgiving Day found us at a friend’s house in Rome, with an expansive potluck dinner. We drank some wine, ate lots and lots of food, and talked for hours. It was a great home away from home ‘Rome Family’ experience. Ryan’s Italian teacher was there, some coworkers and some friends from other European countries. We drank Cherry Polish Vodka, and mixed Vodka with apple juice to make Polish apple pie. The end of the evening found us all gathered out on the host’s balcony drinking espresso with Bailey’s and whipped cream that Ryan made on the stove with our new Italian tea pot.
I am certainly thankful for new friends this year.
