Thanksgiving and Family

Thanksgiving and Family
This weekend is the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend. We are having our Thanksgiving supper today and will be joined by my son, daughter-in-law and four of my 10 grandchildren. Also joining us are two friends.

Most of my planned meal is prepared and just waiting to be heated slowly in crockpots and microwaves: two turkeys, stuffing, candied yams, mashed potato casserole, Butternut Squash soup, green bean-mushroom-onion mix, Caesar salad, Kak's cukes, and for dessert Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Icing.


Thanksgiving in Canada isn't celebrated for the same reasons as in America. No pilgrims here! But we celebrate a bountiful harvest and good times with family and friends. 

What are you doing for Thanskgiving? What are your family traditions?

I hope that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day with your family. The menu sounded delicious - I am sure they went home with tummies full from the yummy dishes you prepared.
