12: Family Thanksgiving (Carson and Momo)

M: Ah, Momo, my mom’s wondering if you wanna spend Thanksgiving with us?

W: Your… your mom?

M: Ha, yeah. My mom always wants to know everything about my friends! I guess she also doesn’t want you to spend Thanksgiving alone…

W: Aw, that’s so sweet of your mom. But, uh… what’s Thanksgiving?

M: Ah, most people use it as a time to spend with their families, and eat tons of food! And “give thanks” for all the good things in their lives.

W: Wow, that sounds nice. What kind of Thanksgiving food is there?

M: Every American family has their own version of “Thanksgiving dinner.” Since my family is from the South, we do a turkey AND a ham, cornbread, sweet potato casserole, pecan pie, mac n cheese… Oh man, I’m getting hungry just thinking about it! So, will you come?

W: Sure, and tell your mom I said “thank you” for inviting me! But before that… can you explain to me what a “casserole” is?
