Our fellow Americans, Stefanie and Jake, hosted a Thanksgiving party on Sunday, complete with the biggest turkey I've ever seen. Non-Americans were tasked with bringing salad, rolls, etc as they found most of the menu items perplexing. Sadly, I failed at some of my assigned dishes due to technical difficulties, like Australia not having Karo syrup for pecan pie or french fried onion rings for green bean casserole. Fortunately, what Australia does have is liquor stores that are open on Sunday. Despite the three bottles of champagne and two bottles of wine that we started with for eight people, a supply run was needed mid-afternoon. True indulgence; these people are getting the feel for Thanksgiving already.

Punkin, look for something called golden syrup-it is very much like Karo.
