I’d like to celebrate Thanksgiving with you, the Kiva community! I’d love to cook dinner for us to share but this is the thing: I’m in Tanzania right now. (I’m a Kiva Fellow, serving with Tujijenge and Barefoot Power .) So I’m enlisting your help with getting the food to the table. It’ll be easy! I’ve chosen a familiar Thanksgiving menu:
Turkey with Pan Gravy
Nut Loaf (*vegetarian option)
Coffee or Tea
And just to be certain we end up with the same meal as each other, I’ve provided step-by-step instructions (with full-color illustrations from Tanzania!) for you to follow. You can’t go wrong… So let’s get cooking!
2. Cook the Bird till the juices run clear, and the skin is nicely browned. (Turkeys proved elusive – here’s rooster from Bagamoyo  instead…)
3. Pick, peel, and roast nuts for the nut loaf. Cashews  are abundant here, but feel free to use any nuts growing locally near you.
8. Brew coffee or tea – we grow them both here! Our coffee is world-famous for quality and flavor, but we export most beans to you. We usually use instant powder ourselves, or more often drink tea.
I hope you’ve cooked up a feast!
Happy Thanksgiving from Tanzania!
