Canadian Thanksgiving

(viewed 957 times)
Bookmark and Share
I know Thanksgiving is a North American concept. It comes in October here, and in November in the States.

How about pagan harvest festival?

Best part is eating pie with whipped cream for breakfast, and having it again with a sandwich later. The whole point of the dinner, far as I am concerned, is the sandwich the next day.

Happy Thanksgiving.

oh yummy! I would say it makes me feel hungry, but as I have just finished eating an enormous piece of Tiramisu Gateau, I wont. I feel pretty stuffed actually.

wow. post food and there are seven hits before you finish the edit.

I am particularly proud of myself and the great meal we had. I did not throw a fit when the oven went beserk and I had to cook everything on 'warm'. anything hotter meant smoke all through the house, something which I can do regularly.

I tend not to go along with the organised festivals, though I do quite like our harvest festival. I like the idea of thanksgiving, especially at this time of year, and there's no better way of doing it than cooking food that will take a week to eat, and then slowly but surely ploughing a furrow through it. I'm all in favour of the pie/whipped cream combo for breakfast, in fact every meal.

I had pie and whipped cream for breakfast too- two kinds of pie in fact, pumpkin and apple. Good thing the temperature has just dropped. Hibernation time!

Bliss! and some pretty fab cooking going on there SR. We only do this kind of cooking at Christmas- and not then sometimes 'cause it's too hot. Shame we don't have some festivities in winter to really enjoy firing up the stove and warming up the whole house.

whoa. so many comments. I think food blogging is the way to go here if you want a response.

para, the trick is to invite a lot of people to the feast and make them take home leftovers. that way, people come back, and you don't have such a big furrow to plough.

esheep, please come. it's the girlfriends I don't understand. you'd be a secret weapon.

facto, it is 7pm here and the day is hot and humid. 30C or 86F. no snow coming.

jesson, we apropriate aboriginal celebrations. maybe oz has some lurking.

really?
Like all life involves is what you eat? not how you love, and treat the people who love you?

when there is nothing to joke on, go ahead, joke on pope ) treat the people who love you with animal corpses? treatment for the people who love you is in your heart and your eyes and in the words you say, but not on your table in the form you posted here. just in my opinion and the way I see, nothing personal, no offence and sincere apologies if my words hurt you.
