Thanksgiving the Swedish way

Me and Em, mostly Em since she lived in Stockholm, have thru the years collected some American friends in Sweden, and we have also collected some American traditions... Thanksgiving happen to be one of them!  Sometimes Americans asks me why we don't celebrate Thanksgiving, and that really makes me think that those people may not know why they have an eating fest every November...

Ah, nevermind, nevermind friends... We had some friends over the weekend after the American Thanksgiving and I know that was a couple of weeks ago, but I have been in turkey coma ever since... How do you American guys do it?

We did have the American dude Karl slice the turkey, Em did the basting, stuffing (andother thing I just cannot learn to like) and the gravy, I did the basting liquid and yummy brussels sprouts with bacon and garlic. Sunnee who is American created yummy truffel oiled mashed potatoes,,, and Jesper who's got an Amercan girlfriend in Texas took an international approach and brought cheese, wine and he even made a yummy lentil soup. Half Italian Joakim was a no-good-slacker and just sat around and looked good, but you can get extra credits for that... well, in all fairness, he brought beers and wine...
