My First Canadian Thanksgiving
Gobble, gobble!!! Gobble, WHAT????!!!! Yes, my American friends – Thanksgiving is celebrated in October in Canada.
“BLASPHEMY!!!!!!” you cry. Thanksgiving before Halloween. I know. It’s weird. Okay, okay. Different. Don’t want to be offendin’ any Canucks!!!! Click here to read my post from last year where I put into detail the myriad of reasons for celebrating Canadian Thanksgiving. There’s a lot of them. Educate thyself!!!
LOOK AT THIS TURKEY!!!!! A 23 POUNDER!!!!! I’ve never seen a turkey this big in my entire life!!!! Free range, no hormones or antibiotics! Straight from where Deb grew up in Port Alberni, Vancouver Island. Or, “The Island” as Vancouverites like to casually call it!
I’m not sure why Deb’s mom has that unsure look on her face!!! Because the turkey + the stuffing were looking mighty delectable!!!! She’s so cute!
Tobin was attempting to show me his book of character drawings, but I was trying to get a picture of him + meanwhile Jeff was trying to get him on FaceTime with his Aunt Daphne. Poor Tobin, so cornered!!! It’s like being hounded by the paparazzi – Prince Charles, look out!!!!!
Cranberry sauce, stuffing, yams, carrots + peas, brussel sprouts, mashed potatoes + gravy!!!! Everything was delish!!!
Thanksgiving = elastic waistband, y’all!!!!
Hope everyone had a fantastic Canadian Thanksgiving!!!!
