      Thank you, Abbe! I hope you have the chance to cook some of these dishes one of these days. We don’t celebrate this holiday in Brazil either. But since I live in the US with my family, we do celebrate it at here. xx

        Hello, Denise! The recipes shown here are wonderful! It’s very great the Thanksgiving celebration.
        But there’s this observation that there are indeed many families who celebrate Thanksgiving in Brazil on the same date that is celebrated in the USA, but not in the same importance degree as it is celebrated by Americans. Yes, we share a happy season!
        Thank you! ‘Obrigado!’ I’m Ronaldo Soares, from São Paulo.

        • Denise Browning 16 January, 2016 at 5:04 pm #

          Hi, Ronaldo!
          I have heard about American families that live in Brazil as well as in the rest of the world celebrating Thanksgiving (a typical American holiday), but never about Brazilian families celebrating Thanksgiving. This is an official holiday in the US, but not in Brazil.
          Thanks for stopping by!

    Don’t you just love Thanksgiving? I always make the ‘traditional’ things even though it’s summer here but since I’ve been blogging I always choose a new dish to see if it fits to be added to next year’s ‘traditional’.
