Broffano Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, but don't be sad for me... despite being away from my family I still had a chance to celebrate with overwhelming amounts of turkey, gravy, stuffing, pasta (of course) and plenty of delicious wine!

Italian Thanksgiving by the numbers:

14 - Number of kilograms our turkey weighed

32 - Our turkey's weight in pounds

2 - Number of Italian butchers' mouths that dropped when they confirmed that this was what we wanted

14 - Euro cost of the turkey thermometer

20 - Number of family and friends invited over to Thanksgiving dinner at Toffano house

4 - Proud parents present at dinner

5 - Days after Thanksgiving that I ate leftovers

1 - Family I missed this year
