Thanksgiving in France

Thanksgiving has come to France. And Non, I did not serve a giant snail to my friends for Thanksgiving dinner. What I did serve was a turkey, which was advertised at Lidl as “de Thanksgiving.”

 

We know there were no French pilgrims at the first Thanksgiving, but it would appear that the French have adopted our holiday. The Lidl turkey was small, very lean, tasty and a bit expensive at €4.59 a kilo, which is about $2.50 a pound.

    ha ha! I loved that Thanksgiving snail!… But then being a vegan, neither the snail nor the turkey are edible… You are right, Thanksgiving (and Black Friday!!!) have been adopted here in France: years ago I could not find real fresh cranberries anywhere. Now even picard has them.
