Well, the bird is in the oven, and I am taking a break from prepping vegetables to wish you all a HAPPY THANKSGIVING! I know that it’s not the American Thanksgiving (before you all start saying What the Fuck?! It’s not Thanksgiving), but it is the lesser-known Canadian Thansgiving! So I am wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving today, on our Thanksgiving!
My sister and mom are coming over to join us (Joe, babies and me) for a massive feast, the first Thanksgiving dinner that I have ever undertaken on my own!! As long as I don’t fuck up the turkey or have too many glasses of wine, i’m sure everything will turn out amazing! My poor dad & brother in Manchester are going to be thinking about us scarfing down our awesome turkey dinner as they are eating their sub-standard curry & chips! That’s why we moved to Canada… To get away from the food. 😉 Kidding of course… There are sooooo many things I love to eat in Britain… Chip Butties, Fish N Chips, Curry & Chips… Noticing a theme here. I love chips!
Here’s my menu for the day:
Roasted & braized turkey stuffed with cranberry stuffing
Candied Caramelized Sweet Potatoes
Mashed Potatoes with Garlic
Seasoned Parisienne Potatoes & Carrots
Buttered Green Beans
Baked Bread Stuffing
and for dessert:
Apple Crisp w/ Cool Whip
Pumpkin Pie w/ Cool Whip
So… Wish me luck! Hopefully it won’t be a disaster! So far so good though.
