Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!

It’s Canadian Thanksgiving today. We cooked and ate our traditional dinner yesterday, which means today we can relax, catch up on some work, and enjoy leftovers for dinner. Despite a threatening forecast, it’s a bright sunny day so far; yesterday was gorgeous too. The foliage isn’t as bright as it sometimes is at this time of year, but it was still lovely on our traditional family walk in Point Pleasant Park yesterday:

 

 

And here’s our traditional Thanksgiving dinner: roast pork, mashed sweet potatoes, boiled new potatoes, sauteed carrots and mushrooms, green beans, and homemade cranberry sauce:

Dessert is apple crumble with vanilla ice cream. Delicious!

    Thank you, Stefanie! It’s especially nice now that my daughter is old enough to help with all the chopping and peeling. She sliced all the apples for the crumble: we did a little mental math and figured out that the end result was 240 apple slices.

    The Bears and I send our greetings. We hadn’t realised that you celebrated Thanksgiving as well. It is a lovely tradition and I wish we had something similar in the UK. Although, I suppose, given the reason behind it, it’s not surprising that we don’t. The Bears did mental maths as well and worked out that that was 24 slices of apple each, but want to know if they can have theirs dipped in honey, please?

    Your photos made my heart hurt a little…there’s nothing like NS in early Fall. 🙂
