Happy Thanksgiving!

We want to send our best wishes home to all of you friends and family. We are grateful for all the support you’ve been to us over the past 9 months- we know we wouldn’t be here now without your help!

Thanksgiving passed without ado here in Nanjing. We woke up, went to morning and afternoon classes, and Liz even went out for an hour in the evening to teach an English class! A few of our Chinese friends had heard of the holiday, but it came and went without any outward trappings. Certainly no football games to watch! We’ll have a small celebration of our own on Saturday when we can relax a bit. Our good friend sent us a no-bake pumpkin-pie recipe. If anyone has a no-bake Turkey recipe, that would also come in handy.

We miss you all back home. We are giving thanks for you and for all of our blessings!

    So, how did the pie turn out? Any other Tday trappings today (Saturday)?

    In Yanji City one of our more enterprising teachers, a gentleman from So Korea, managed to find a local restaurant willing to roast a turkey we bought from a neighboring family near the school grounds—the turkey was delicious!
    We tried to bake a pie in the little toaster/oven and it was a flop! No ovens there. At least not the kind we’re used to using. But there was a lot of gratitude expressed all day—we had classes as usual all week, so we celebrated on the nearest Saturday—shared with our new Chinese friends a national holiday from the USA. Good Fun!
