Thanksgiving is this week! We, at YFU, are sure you are thinking of all the food and sweets that are coming up. Possibly Grandma's secret recipe for apple pie or the savory turkey your parents always seem to cook perfectly. Whatever it is, we hope you enjoy it.For something new and exciting though, maybe you could consider trying something such as tapas, sea urchin, Vegemite, schnitzel, Japanese barbecue, smoked salmon, even candies and sweets (such as crepes) from all over the world! There are thousands of foods out there waiting for you to try. Get out there, try for yourself!
You could even, if you are not feeling that adventurous, just share your Thanksgiving traditions with an exchange student at your own home.
Happy Thanksgiving from YFU!
