Far away fanksgiving.

Well here I am again, a vegetarian Welsh chick living in NZ and somehow I have again been drawn into hosting a combined Midwinter Thanksgiving/Christmas for 4 people I know well, 4 I know a bit and 7 friends of friends. The nationalities are Canadian, Kiwi, American, British, Dutch and German. The oven is small, but the turkey can go in the BBQ so that'll make things easier. Oh, and there are 4 vegetarians. I am seriously sceptical about the Nigella recipie for sweet potatoes (or kumara as they called here, which apparently are the same things as yams in the states) with a marshmallow topping. That doesn't look right to me. Or maybe I'm just too conservative? How many dessert choices? Will there be panic becasue I don't have fried onions in a tin from a pigglywiggly?! What if the requested tiny onions aren't tiny enough? Will there be an issue with serving proper cranberry sauce and not the 'real' stuff in a tin? If I could find the fried onions in a tin and the jellied cranberry in a tin which then gets cut into round discs I would gladly serve it- each to thier own..... it'll be fine, it'll be fine, it'll be fine. Sorry, just had to get that off my chest in a safe and understanding place!
