There is an anti American Thanksgiving conspiracy going on in Kuwait. (Desert Girl meltdown...)
There are no fresh turkeys to be found in Kuwait.
The Sultan Center has no US sweet potatoes and NO cranberries of any kind.
Sultan Center says that they "think" they'll get a shipment of turkeys after December 7th and that they "might" get fresh cranberries around the same time because "they're not in season". BS!
SHAME ON YOU SULTAN CENTER!!!!
Oh, and get this... Dean & Deluca, the pillar of quality food and service in Kuwait "hasn't priced their turkeys yet" (according to management) and "needs to check with their procurement office". Emmm..... hel-loooo! Thanksgiving is less than a week away! D&D - OF NEW YORK!!!! A disgrace to all Americans living in Kuwait on Thanksgiving Day. Uffaaaaa
I'm REALLY PISSED OFF. (Can you tell?!)
I have heard from one of my friends where I can find fresh cranberries. I'm sorry, but I have to keep this one close-hold until I get get my hands on some (and then I'll announce).
The PX on Arifjan has turkeys. Thanks to the BIG heart of a certain Boy-de-'bama, I'm going to get one of them and Stella has very very kindly volunteered to cook it (I LOVE YOU!!!)
Oooooo Saaaaaaaa. It will be okay. It will be okay. It will be okay.
November 20 Update...
BamaBoy came to the rescue with "the biggest turkey they had" at the PX for all of 8KD! Woo hoo.
Found and procured cranberries. Done.
Dean and Deluca called. 12KD per kilo for their cooked turkey. Um.... that's why they waited until the last minute: because they knew people would be desperate enough to pay those kind of prices. GLAD I don't have to!
