Thanksgiving in Romania

What I Loved: Introducing my Romanian fiance and his family to the American holiday, and having a taste of home (care of a box of Stouffer's stuffing sent from the U.S.).

What I Didn't Love: As turkeys were then hard to find in Romanian supermarkets, my future in-laws offered to get one from a farmer they knew. Imagine my surprise (horror?) when my future mother-in-law called and asked if I wanted to come over and take a picture of the turkey before they killed it.
