lots of cooking!

With our shipment still sitting at the port in Benin, we made do with what we had in a sparsely furnished house to celebrate this Thanksgiving. Thankfully, we were able to borrow some extra pots and pans, tables and chairs, and silverware.

We have some serious leftovers!

This would not have been possible without my amazing mom and CURE friends!
