Happy Thanksgiving! We had a wonderful thanksgiving this year. My parents came to Eugene from Portland and we all went to Ben’s parents’ house for Thanksgiving Dinner. We have so much to be thankful for, including having loving and supportive parents! We were also thankful that we had received our summons for immigration fingerprinting and that our appointed day and time didn’t fall in the middle of finals or conflict with any holiday plans! We’ll be going to Portland December 18th for fingerprinting.
Ben and I decided to take advantage of having both sets of parents in Eugene after Thanksgiving to throw a Georgian Heritage Dinner. So the Saturday after Thanksgiving, I cooked a full Georgian meal and we sat down to give thanks for our adoption and the opportunity to be immersed in an important aspect of Georgian culture—food and drink! We hope that our Georgian Heritage Dinner will be an annual event. Maybe our toddler will be present for the Second Annual dinner in 2015! Here’s the menu and some pictures from the 2014 Georgian Heritage Dinner.
