Canadian Thanksgiving

Canadian Thanksgiving was this past Sunday, October 7. For those of you confused, we have it earlier ’cause it’s colder, and thus harvest is earlier.

Anyways, I just happened to fly into Toronto from London at 17:00 hours on Sunday October 7th, was picked up at the airport by my brother, whisked back to my grandparents house in Oakville and presented with this:

Thanksigiving Dinner

My family’s basic, unpretentious Thanksgiving dinner, as it has been since I was born: Turkey, Stuffing, Mashed Potatoes, Gravy, Corn, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Cheese Sauce and Turnip Mash.

    Boy, I miss Thanksgiving! And I’ve only been away from the US for nine months. I didn’t even know Canada celebrated Thanksgiving either! Gotta love those ethnocentric history classes in the States. Forgive my ignorance, but does it have a different meaning for Canadians?

    This year my wife decided to have a dry run thanksgiving day to test out her recipes. We soaked the bird in a brine solution she got at William Sonoma it really kept it moist. OMG, the turkey was so good and I get to do it again in a few days!
