I successfully cooked my first turkey, and it was a hit - Most of the ingredients I was hoping to find at the supermarket here didn't exist. There was no cranberry sauce, or cream of mushroom soup (green bean casserole), and there certainly wasn't any apple pie, but I did somehow manage to make my own gravy-like sauce, mashed potatoes, sautéed green beans, and rolls. It was really nice to cook a meal for everyone, since I have been receiving them for the entirety of my stay here. I am so thankful to be staying with and getting to know this wonderful family. What a blessing it is!
