For two years, Cassie has had Thanksgiving dinner at their bar on Friday. Inviting American teachers from Genova and Stefano's Italian friends and family from Camogli. This Friday was to be no different and Chris and I were going to be here to partake. Turkey, stuffing, two kinds of mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, cornbread, cranberries, creamed corn. Cassie asked me if I could think of anything else. I thought, "a bit heavy on the starches", and said how about a creamed spinach dish. Spinach isn't in season here, so I said, "what about Kale!"

Libby, Cassie's mom, got up and explained what Thanksgiving meant to Americans and then Stefano played the Star Spangled Banner and all the American's got up and sang.
Probably the best Thanksgiving ever with our new friends in Camogli.
