Thanksgiving Part 1

Turkey, cranberries, insta-gravy, stuffing with walnuts and dried cherries, cauliflour, corn, squash, potatoes with rosemary and lemon peel, salad, bread, pumpkin ice cream pie. It's Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend, and as long as our house was already clean from Friday's party, having a dinner party seemed like a good idea. It was the first time we'd fed more than 4 people with real cutlery, plates, and wine glasses, and the food turned out realy well. We didn't make the bread or the pumpkin ice cream pie. That was one good pie, irvinl - I can see why C. has been dreaming about it since last year.

We didn't end up with too many leftovers, although there was plenty for a good turkey soup for lunch today, and we have a whole Queen of Tarts apple pie all to ourselves, as well as pumpkin ice cream pie leftovers. Good eating. And there's another Thanksgiving in another 6 weeks or so.

We had bread-crumb stuffing with onions and celery, and the insta-gravy, too. I've currently got a big pot of soup stock simmering away on the stove and am feeling cheerfully domestic. ^-^;;

Happy T-Giving!

More thanksgiving
I'm doing my Thanksgiving tomorrow. Since Canadian Thanksgiving isn't a holiday in Britain, I had to organise the meal around everyone's schedule and Monday wasn't feasible so it's going to be tomorrow instead. I bought the Turkey today and lugged it back from Tesco in my backpack. I wouldn't recommend carrying a 6kg turkey on you back for 30 minutes. It leaves one rather sore.
But I'm going all the way. Turkey, gravy (either the not-so-real or real), mashed potatoes (my speciality), roast sweet potatoe, parsnip, carrot, and onion, stuffing, maybe some bread, and two apple pies for dessert. The pies are being made tonight and the rest will be done tomorrow afternoon. I'm feeding 8 people so it should be a challenge.
Glad to hear that the tradition of Toronto people gathering for Thanksgiving is still going strong. And you get American Thanksgiving, too.
