Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Just making my apple pie (beautiful daughter's boyfriend's favourite). Is it just me or does it seem like two weeks ago we were saying "Happy Thanksgiving"? :)

Happy Thanksgiving! And kudos for picking the harvest season as a time to have it.

What food traditions are common for Thanksgiving dinner in Canada? Turkey? Cranberry Sauce? Pumpkin Pie? (I have heard from friends living overseas during the holidays that cranberry sauce is liked by the locals, turkey is considered weird, and pumpkin pie is right up there with the general American take on Vegemite.)

Because of the prominent Scottish heritage of our nation, you stuff it with Haggis. :lol:

Turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, yams, turnip, broccoli, gravy, cranberry sauce, pumpkin and apple pie...Tums...;)

Thanksgiving here tends to be more low-key than in the US. Of course, we don't have Black Friday to go along with; we still have to get through Halloween! Many people have their turkey dinners with family on the Sunday and use the Monday as the travel day to get back home.

It will be a nice weekend here...the leaves haven't quite yet blown off the trees (that's a little unusual), and it will be sunny with temps in the low/mid-teens (C). My stepdad and his wife, and my son and his family will be here for dinner on Monday -- none of them have to work Tuesday.

Happy Thanksgiving!

It is not my first turkey. I am trying brine for the first time.

I hope that you have a great week-end.

Sorry. That sounds to me a good bit scarier!

I've now had my first nap.

In honour of Thanksgiving there was a slight hint of frost tonight - my car was fogged up.

The weather here is definitely not like a normal Thanksgiving weekend - we've had a heatwave and have set temperature records the past 2 days! And it's another blue sky and sunshine day on the actual Thanksgiving Day :)
