Happy Thanksgiving to all of my American readers. I am once again celebrating this holiday in Paris and having the actual Thanksgiving meal on Saturday since the French people coming work on this day. I made a trip to a store in the Marais called Thanksgiving owned by a couple from Louisiana where you can find things that can be difficult to find in Paris such as cranberries. It’s very expensive from my point of view but everything is imported. I entered with a friend and the store was full of Americans. My friend struck up a conversation with one of the women and my friend asked her why she was in Paris and she said, “I married a Frenchman” and my friend said, “So did I!” and I said, “So did I!” I asked her if she had a blog but she didn’t. An American man asked the difference between condensed milk and evaporated milk and we all told him. He was making pumpkin pie so we directed him to the evaporated milk. It was just a lot of fun in there, sort of like a party. I bought some items for my coming meal.
This video, which I can’t get imbedded for some reason, shows a bit of the trip there and the interior of the store. Just copy and paste at Youtube to see it.
