It's our Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend. How are you celebrating? Ours is a quiet one this year with just my hubby and I.
Long gone are the days when all my children and their families returned home for a feast like this on the left.
I no longer cook a big turkey like this one from 2015. So I feel a bit sad this year. Times change. Lives get busy. Family live far away.
I get it. But I still like to get together with family on this weekend.
I think my husband is looking forward to the peace and quiet though. With 10 grandchildren it can get rather hectic!
We've certainly had our share of fun on Thanksgiving. One year my husband decided to raise our own turkey for the feast. But he let it grow until it was over 50 pounds and I didn't have a big enough pot or oven to cook it in!
On the right are the two birds. One for Thanksgiving and one for Christmas. They had a lovely reprieve that year.
Wishing everyone who celebrates our Canadian Thanksgiving a wonderful holiday! What are your traditions?
