This year I celebrated Thanksgiving a few days late. It’s on the 4th Thursday in November in the US, but in France it’s just a normal day, so we moved Thanksgiving to Sunday instead.
So today I wanted to share with you some recipes for the different dishes we ate.

Of course the main dish was a big, delicious turkey!
Inside the turkey we put a stuffing. There are loads of different stuffing recipes with all different ingredients. Every family has their own tradition. Here is the stuffing we made this year, with leeks, celery, granny smith apples and chestnuts. It was delicious!
For the side dishes, (like the stuffing) they vary from family to family. This year we made sweet potato casserole, with a cruncy brown sugar and pecan topping. It was a hit! I definitely recommend trying this one if you haven’t tasted sweet potatoes before!
Another dish that we always make for my family Thanksgiving dinner is a green bean casserole. This is a very simple dish, but it’s a tradition that I grew up with, and Thanksgiving just isn’t the same without it.
So after we stuffed ourselves with all of these delicious dishes we moved on to the dessert! We tried two typical desserts. The first one is the pecan pie:
And the second was the pumpkin pie:
Next year I’m tempted to try this recipe for a pumpkin pecan pie, combining these two traditional desserts into one:
Let us know if you try out any of the recipes, and what you think about them!!
