Thanksgiving: The American grocery store in Paris, not the holiday!
It seems hard to believe, but a year ago at this time I was still living in Switzerland and trying to imagine what my new life would be like in Paris. Whenever Linda, an American friend who used to live here, and I got together, she would invariably tell me to go to Thanksgiving. As I had always thought of Thanksgiving as a holiday and not as a small grocery store that is stocked full of American treasures, her recommendation always confused me. It turns out that Thanksgiving is THE place to go if you're ever craving Kraft's Mac and Cheese, Stove Top stuffing or Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Which, let's be honest, are the kind of things that Americans inexplicably start craving as soon as we leave the country. Sure, the prices are higher than what you would pay at your local grocery store in the United States, but where else can you get these kind of delicacies in Paris? And best of all, Thanksgiving is open from Tuesday-Saturday and not just the fourth Thursday of November.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and please eat a bit of turkey, cranberry relish and sweet potato casserole for me!
