Happy Thursday! Now, for my UK readers it’s just another day – Black Friday is tomorrow and it’s a little closer to the weekend. But if you’re in the US, it’s a different story – today is Thanksgiving!
Being a British girl I’m not completely sure what thanksgiving is all about – I asked a Canadian couple about it once and they said it was just a day where you take a moment to express gratitude to all the people and things you care about in your life. I think that’s a great thing to do every day, but doing it together with loved ones over a meal seems like a wonderful tradition.
While it hasn’t really hit the UK and Europe, recently I have heard of more and more Brits heading to Thanksgiving dinners with American friends in London, and I think in a few years we’ll see a lot more of it.
This year I wanted to get involved in a small way, and so when a Deliciously Ella recipe for a vegan pecan pie popped up on my Instagram feed I grabbed some ingredients and gave it a go! While I’m still waiting to tuck into it, the kitchen smells amazing and I snapped a few pics before it gets demolished.
Are you celebrating Thanksgiving this year? Tweet me and let me know what you’re grateful for.
