Canadian Thanksgiving 2011

 

 

Mosaic for Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian Blogging friends.   It has been the most wonderful weather here with warm temperatures.  We had our family dinner yesterday so that the kids could go to dinner to their spouses or soon to be spouses family dinner today.    Our oldest son got a deep fryer for cooking a turkey for his birthday and we decided to try it out.   It took approximately 45 minutes to cook the 12 lb bird as apposed to the 4 hours in the oven.   Stuffing had to be made in the oven and the gravy came from a jar.   I cooked my own pie pumpkin this year and I much prefer it to the can of pumpkin puree.   It was a lovely dinner.   I ate too much and will have to watch it for the rest of the week or my dress won’t fit for the youngest son’s wedding on Saturday.   

I am joining Mosaic Monday with Mary at DearLitteRedHouse.   Have a great week.   Valerie

Canadian Thanksgiving is so much like American Thanksgiving in tradition and custom. Any holiday when we get together with family and friends to give thanks is perfect to me!

Happy Thanksgiving, Valerie! Just take an extra walk or two and that dress will zip right up! I hope there will be photos of the wedding - I am curious about all things 'wedding' these days.

Val,
Glad you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I love the turkey cooked in the fryer - I also love it in the oven. The pie sounds delicious.
Have a wonderful week!

Your Thanksgiving dinner sounded yummy! We've had fried turkey before and loved it. We may just do that again soon. Surely turkey can't just be for Thanksgiving or Christmas, right?
Have a great week and enjoy that wedding on Saturday!
