Happy Thanksgiving! .... ehh. ok?

Needless to say, people were not too enthused about Thanksgiving.  In fact, when we went to the butcher's and asked for a whole turkey they looked at us like we were crazy! Alejandro, one of the gap year students also from the states, went to town with us to find supplies for a thanksgiving meal.  None of the others had ever celebrated Thanksgiving before, so we were excited to prepare a meal for everyone!  This was before we realized that the markets in La Garriga gave us very limited resources... especially for the types of food we were craving.  They don't sell a whole lot of canned foods.  So we did the best we could to come up with a variety of somewhat thanksgivingy foods to make.  We were unable to find a turkey, but did find already prepared frozen chickens, which was cheap and yummy!
3 little chickens
We were able to pull together a pretty good dinner! much better than what we expected after not being able to find ingredients for some of the more traditional American foods.

Appetizers (including a cheeseball... getting ready for cheesefest :) )

chicken, green beans, corn, broccoli, mac and cheese, mashed potatoes. Yum! 

We went around the table and everyone shared what they were thankful for.  After dinner we then decided to share some dance moves.. work off some of the calories we had just eaten! We had a great time sharing some of our popular dances with the Brits! and getting to hear some of theirs! overall a very festive Thanksgiving Celebration!

started off with the wobble.. somehow got to cotton-eyed joe ha
