Here are some photo highlights of my Thanksgiving celebration in Madrid…

The turkey. Finding a turkey in Madrid isn’t sooo hard… it’s just finding one that isn’t 18kg (just under 40 lbs) or another way-to-big size that can be an issue. This turkey was big, but not toooo big!

Our food. Biscuit, stuffing, mashed potatoes with gravy, corn bread/caserole, green bean caserole, and turkey!

A lot of people have asked me what Thanksgiving in Madrid is like. To prove that US culture is really everywhere, I am pleased to announce that it WAS possible to have a traditional Thanksgiving dinner…. but where? At an Irish pub.

I know you are probably laughing at this fact, or looking at your screen in disbelief. It’s true! I went to an Irish pub where they served pumpkin soup (more like a cream of pumpkin), turkey with cranberry sauce, bread pudding, and pecan pie! I was surprised to see quite a few other places advertising Thankgiving dinners, and not just American restaurants. I didn’t eat the typical dinner because I ate lunch around 5:45 that day, but it was nice to see other American friends enjoying the experience! I was just along for the ride.
