Thanksgiving 2012

Last week there was Thanksgiving day.
Last year after I got home I was so tired and stayed home. But this year I went to my friends' party after work...

For the dinner I made sautéed brussels sprouts and leek and sweet potato.
I didn't know "sweet potato" is Japanese thing but it was!!
Everyone didn't know about what it was. Interesting!!

After I moved here, I had 3 thanksgivings but it was my first time to have whole turkey!! It was so exciting for me:) Everyone brought dishes and all were so Thanksgiving and all so good!!!
We had so much food and ate a lot.
And "turkey makes you sleepy" was so true!! (tryptophan effect) After big meal of turkey and busy work I was so sleepy after dinner... I'm glad my home was close to my friend's house... :)
Eating, drinking, talking and laughing with amazing people is the best thing to do on Thanksgiving!!
Thank you so much everyone for joining me that night!! :)

ターキーがまるまる一匹食卓に上るのは始めてだったので、それはそれは盛り上がりました。それぞれがサラダやマッシュポテト、パイなどを持ち寄ったこともあり、テーブルは食べ物でいっぱい。そしてそれぞれにすべてとってもおいしく、ついつい食べ過ぎてしまいました。 ターキーを食べると眠くなると言われています(トリプトファンのせい)が、それは本当で、みんなで大きなお腹をさすりながら、残りの時間をまったりと過ごしました。
