Thanksgiving in Thailand

Several of us had been missing American food and starting to feel homesick as the holidays approached. So we managed to aquire an enormous bag of wheat flour, brown sugar, and a few other spices... which led to an all-day baking event in the earthen kitchen! We ended making 5 pumpkin pies, two pecan pies, 5 loaves of banana bread, oatmeal raison cookies (oats are extremely special here) and tamarind jam.

Cooking over fire and using a cob oven took a little getting used to.

We had a humble and mindful dinner at our place, with one of the loviest rounds of expressing gratitude I've ever attended.

Then we invited the neighboring permaculture farms over for pot-luck desserts and had a proper feast.
