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!
