Happy Thanksgiving!


From my understanding, the Canadian tradition is to cook and serve the turkey the weekend before Thanksgiving. So we had our big show last night. 

Here's what was on the menu: turkey stuffed with white-bread sage dressing, German-style potato salad, red cabbage with apples, green beans, turkey gravy, rolls and to top it off, pumpkin pie with French vanilla ice cream. It was a feast! Hope my fellow Canadian readers are having a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Thank you Halycon, similar to the US celebration of Thanksgiving. My mouth has been watering all weekend since you mentioned turkey, we have a month and a half to wait for the glorious feast. Happy Thanksgiving to all the Canadians.

Halycon, I originally was headed to Manhattan on Sat but when I saw there was a game against MU on Sat, I changed my plans to Sunday. I did not want in that traffic.... My aunt lives in an assisted living home and I travel right by the stadium to get to her place. I take that back road on 24 hwy once thru Topeka.

Quite similar to our feast in the U.S. The turkey looks delicious - like it would melt in one's mouth. Now, I'm wondering if you will also celebrate Thanksgiving on November 24, in honor of your time in the U.S.? :-)

Ummmm... Our's is a month and a half away, of course, but maybe I should call KFC for a little appetizer.

No Thanksgiving here, turkey is for Christmas Day.

EG Wow said...

Sounds delicious! Yes, we celebrated on Saturday. I have no idea why most of us celebrate the weekend before the actual day...but most of us do. :)

You did this very nicely, Halcyon. Come on down to Hartford in November for a reprise of your gastronomic artistry.

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
