Celebrating Thanksgiving in South Africa and a Linky

I was telling people that we wouldn't be doing any special cooking for Thanksgiving this year, but my daughter Samantha had other ideas. Hubby bought a roast chicken to save on effort. Samantha baked Hasselback potatoes, roasted a pre-marinaded pork belly, roasted veggies including butternut and sweet peppers, and I made coleslaw and boiled the sweetcorn. Samantha and Amanda made dessert. It was a peach cobbler with custard. Everything was delicious and eating the leftovers made the time spent in the kitchen worth it!

We had all three girls home for Thanksgiving, which was awesome. Tomorrow, our son is turning 25 and he'll be visiting us for a few days before he has to go back to work. He lives just over an hours' drive away from us. It will be super having all our kids home for a change!
