I am one of nine (!) Americans in my graduate program which is delightful for two reasons. One, I get exposed to many different perspectives in the classroom (a big reason why I chose the program I'm in). And two, we have an excuse to get together for our own Thanksgiving celebration.
Now, no Thanksgiving is complete without Grandma Marjorie's Cranberry Salad so I went in search of the right ingredients and put this little number together for our feast (and yes, I brought a selection of jello molds to graduate school in another country).
I love the global perspective my program offers but, I must admit, there's nothing quite like getting together with some fellow Americans to eat familiar food and talk about the questionable origins of many of our national holidays.
