Happy Thanksgiving!

I want to wish all my US readers a very happy Thanksgiving!

We celebrated our own version at home last week with my husbands already legendary Turducken. It was delicious!

Tonight we are lucky to be invited to a Thanksgiving Dinner with the newly appointed US Ambassador to Austria, Ms Alexa Wesner. I look forward to meeting her (plus I’m nervous as hell!!!).

Have a great time with family and friends, dear readers.

    Happy Thanksgiving, Birgit! What perfume will you be wearing for dinner with the Ambassador?

  3. Happy Thanksgiving Birgit! My son’s birthday today, we celebrate Thanksgiving tomorrow with him since another son is a US citizen. Ms Wesner sounds amazing. Bet you’ll have a wonderful time.

    Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving, Birgit – and a splendid evening with the US ambassador! (Although nothing beats a fabulous dinner of turducken, I imagine!) 😉

    Wow. I thought you were kidding about the US Ambassador to the Austria but no! Have fun and try to relax. Remember you’re the guest, I’m sure Ms Wesner will be more nervous. Look forward to hearing about it. Very exciting.

  7. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours Birgit. Have a fantastic time!

    I’m from Louisiana, home of the Turducken, and I’m thrilled to see it cropping up in Vienna! The US has spread so many bad food habits that it’s nice to think of some good ones spreading around too. If your husband ever has time, I ‘d love to have him sketch out how he did it. I’m always intrigued by how recipes are tweaked to suit new circumstances.
    A very happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

    Wow! I do not think I have ever met an ambassador. Your having dinner with one is cool. The Turdusken looks great, I would be happy to have one bird with skin so nice and crispy.
    BTW I think you can never go wrong with Bois d’Isle 🙂

    Turducken – the fowl equivalent of Russian dolls. ; – ) Good for Dr O, it looks lecker! And have fun with the Ambassador – I am sure you will charm her socks off!

    Enjoy, and happy Thanksgiving!

    Have a wonderful time,Birgit! I hope you went for the perfume that made you feel confident and beautiful.

    Since nobody else was curious (or impolite? 😉 ) enough to ask, I have to! Why did you decide to celebrate Thanksgiving a week before if the official dinner to which you were invited also wasn’t hapenning on actual Thanksgiving Day?

    • Olfactoria says:

      Just like Lady Jane says, we had to pick a weekend, and we invited Sandra and her family, who were leaving for the US the next day to celebrate real Thanksgiving there. 🙂

  13. Lady Jane Grey says:

    Hm, I suppose Dr. O wouldn’t have the time for assembling the Turducken on a normal working day… (Thanksgiving is no holiday in Austria !)

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, too!
    That bird looks amazing – great job your husband has accomplished here! I’m impressed big time, the thing looks d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s!
    Hope you had a wonderful evening with the Ambassador.
    Tell us how it went, please and what fragrance you chose in the end 🙂
    Have a very HAPPY Thursday xo 🙂

      Hello happyface,
      I chose Chanel Bois des Iles as my perfume last night and it was a great evening! (Although the food was a bit disappointing, maybe that is because I am spoiled by my cook whiz husband! 😉 )
      Thank you for your kind words!

  15. poodle says:

    Happy Thanksgiving Birgit! I’m still jealous that your husband can cook.

  16. Sandra says:

    Happy Thanksgiving dear B! We will be thinking of you all tomorrow. Enjoy your dinner. xoxo

  17. Ali says:

    That turkey looks delicious! If your still undecided on a perfume to wear to your official dinner, may I suggest a drop of Chanel No 5?

    Happy Thanksgiving,
    Ali x

  18. That is a BEAUTIFUL turducken! Congratulations to your husband! I would be so proud and I bet it tasted divine. Here’s to many more turduckens and Happy Thanksgiving, Birgit!
