thanksgiving

november 27, 2008

Thanksgiving turned into kind of a big deal this year. I guess all the Congo adventures make me appreciate my home a little more (and hungry). As my escapades increase in intensity, so, too, do my domestic activities. I cooked the whole day with my house chief, LĂ©onidas, who also pulled in Emmanuel, my gardener.

The U.N. didn’t import turkeys for its staff this year so there were very few bird-based dinners. I don’t know the first thing about preparing turkeys anyway so I had about 20 people over and made Thai food.

Hummus is not Thai food, but it’s pretty damn good:

I wanted to keep the pineapples to serve other things in. The hordes of fruit flies convinced me I was being an idiot.
