Advocaat (or however) isn't eggnog. Eggnog is essentially a non alcoholic drink, usually found in the chiller section of the supermarket next to the milk. It can, however, be doctored into an alcoholic drink!!!!

I have never found it sold over here - but never fear, there are plenty of recipes on this forum for excellent eggnog from scratch.

Pie - Pumpkin pie is more along the look of a cheesecake without fruit on the top. You can't tell me you haven't had an apple or lemon meringue pie??!!! Not all pies are steak and kidney!!

looks like i'm going to have to make a batch from scratch to accompany my thanksgiving meal! i'll have a look for some recipes in a minute.

i have to be honest, those sweet pies sound scary!!!!! i'm all for apple pie, cherry pie etc, made with a sweet crust, but don't know whether i would enjoy pumpkin pie.

You're right - it's wonderful BUT how do you describe it to someone that's only dealt with the big orange thing?? How do you tell someone that squidgy mess (okay you get rid of the seeds and goop) turns into a REALLY good pie??

Totally new experience for them..........

i don't mind you asking at all! the reason i decided to have thanksgiving this year... honest answer? you guys. looking at the forum it seems like such a lovely day to spend with family and you all seem to have a great day. it won't be a full on thanksgiving, i'll just cook some traditional thanksgiving food and put a christmas movie on for me and my OH and quietly thank the lord for what i have!

Digressing just for a moment - I think that's one of the great things about this forum. Not only do we get to share in the celebration of Christmas, but we also get to learn so much more about the other countries that all the members come from. Last year, it amazed me how few people realised Canada had Thanksgiving as well and this year that the UK had different holidays (which DOESN'T include Thanksgiving). There is a HUGE world out here, beyond the USA, which everyone can now share and appreciate, thanks to MMC & Co.
