Happy Thanksgiving!

Yes, it's Thanksgiving Monday here in Canada. At the eatwritecreate household, we had a small family gathering yesterday so today is a day of rest, relaxation.....and recovering from the big dinner! With the captain acting as a wonderful sous chef, we piled the food on the table last night for a feast befitting a harvest holiday: turkey, two kinds of stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, brussels sprouts topped with bacon, broccoli topped with cheddar, roasted rutabaga, baked sweet potato and raw baby carrots. Cranberry-orange relish and dill pickles on the side, as well as a nice bottle of riesling. And the required desserts: pumpkin pie and apple pie. We were all as stuffed as the turkey!

Whether your dinner was last night or tonight, with a huge family gathering or a modest one, here's hoping you have a great holiday weekend and pause for a moment to realize that while we all have troubles, we also all have a lot to give thanks for!

I tried the mini version of turkey this year. Turkey breast is wonderful when cooked on it's own. Next time, I'm finding legs and doing them the Oliver Bonicini way of de-boning and stuffing. Glad you had a wonderful feast!
