(CNN) -- The current crew of the International Space Station marked Thanksgiving with zero-gravity-friendly packets of smoked turkey, rehydrated cornbread dressing and a Russian side dish high above Earth. 



 



U.S. astronaut Kevin Ford, the commander of the three-man Expedition 34 crew, showed off the menu in a NASA video. He said he and his Russian crewmates, Evgeny Tarelkin and Oleg Novitskiy, would eat the traditional meal in orbit, adding a Russian mashed-potato-and-onion dish to the American holiday's traditional favorites and washing it down with a cranberry-peach drink.



Ford, Tarelkin and Novitskiy arrived at the station in late October for five-month stint aboard the station. The previous crew returned home Sunday night -- but not without leaving behind a jar of marshmallow cream for Ford's candied yams.



Three additional members are slated to join the Expedition 34 crew in late December.
