This year I spent Thanksgiving in Australia. This is not the first time that I have been working somewhere overseas on Thanksgiving and definitely not the furthest away. One year I spent Thanksgiving in India.
The real question here is when exactly was Thanksgiving Day for me. When did I actually have my Thanksgiving Feast.
Was it the lunch that I had on Thursday which was takeout from a Thai restaurant?
Was it the spicy pork bibimbap that I had at a Korean restaurant on Thursday evening?
Probably not the yogurt and corn flakes that I had for breakfast on Friday.
This would be my closest meal time to when friends back home were enjoying Thanksgiving dinners.
We ordered two metres of pizza. You choose three different types of pizza for a metre of pizza, so we had a total of six different pizzas between the two metres. We also had some delicious garlic bread.
Here is a closeup of one of the pizzas. The pizza is very authentic Italian pizza. The pizza oven is wood fired and was built by a third generation oven builder from Naples. The cooks are award winning pizza chefs from Italy who have brought their recipes and techniques to Australia. I will say that it is some of the best pizza I have eaten.
Or, I could just say that I had my Thanksgiving dinner a month early when I celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving.
I did enjoy posts from friends and family as they celebrated Thanksgiving and also got an interesting video from a niece and nephew wishing me Happy Thanksgiving.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
