You may know (or not), but today, in the United States, it’s Thanksgiving. And traditionally, on this day, we eat a turkey. I offer you a nice chicken, as it should be…
In some families, the tradition is also, that at the time of toasting, everyone expresses gratitude for something that has been important to him in the year. We lent to this game between friends and I have to say that finally, we all had a lot of things to say. This is a beautiful moment.
I take this opportunity to tell you that I am ‘thankful’ to all these exchanges with you and that this modest blog allows me to enjoy a little more of each moment, and sweets that we offer our culinary adventures… A huge THANK you !

Now, I let you take good advantage of this turkey leg at the orange, a small dish of sweet-salty.
