THANKSGIVING PIE TASTING FEAST 2010

Wendy . Blog Publicado 24 Noviembre 2010

The 4th Thursday of November is......Thanksgiving Day in the USA!
You know, turkey day, football games, big family get-togethers, a four-day weekend!
Those of us who are far from "home" decided years ago that we needed to celebrate this auspicious occasion, to show our children what it's all about. So we have our big family turkey dinners on Saturday when we're all free. You see, we have to work on Thursdays in Spain! In consolation, we hit upon the idea of having a THANKSGIVING PIE TASTING FEAST. Tonight everyone is cooking: traditional apple pies and pumpkin pies or whatever else takes our fancy. We've also spent a week encouraging our students, colleagues in other departments and UEM campus staff to get involved so there will be desserts from different regions in Spain and from other countries too.

We expect record numbers on Thursday, November 25th, 13:30-15:30 in Building A.
Homemade desserts at a bargain price! YOU can try 4 desserts for 1 Euro. At that price you can even treat your friends! The money goes to charity. After all, this IS THANKSGIVING. All your donations will go to the NGO: Amigos de los Mayores in 2010-2011.

Hope to see you at the function...... Wendy
