We are sooo excited! We’ll be hosting our very first South African Thanksgiving this year all in honor of my lovely American sister-in-law. (Or maybe it should be American-African?)
Yes, they’ve decided to live in South Africa for a while and we are THRILLED. We’ve never thought of Thanksgiving before. Now the challenge is it is super HOT in South Africa at the moment and we don’t usually eat turkeys :-). We have found a store where we can buy them. We thought that we’d “adapt” the traditional Thanksgiving dishes to the South African climate but still keep it as authentic as possible.
At our celebrations we usually braai, eat watermelon, koeksisters and melktert. We do have a form of pumpkin pie though.
This is where YOU come in. Please share your ideas/recipes/ what Thanksgiving means to you. We would appreciate anything and everything from recipes to decorating ideas.
