Default Happy (Cdn) Thanksgiving

We always have Thanksgiving threads, so since ours is in October, I figure I'd get it started.

I roasted a chicken, made his n' her dressing (mine was with chaffles), gravy, and mashed cauliflower. Not pictured: coconut flour cheese tea biscuits that I knew would be too filling, and I just left them in the fridge. I actually put the chicken drum back after I took the picture below, knowing I wouldn't finish it. I was stuffed on 1/2 chicken breast, the dressing, the cauli mash and gravy on everything.

I thought of doing pumpkin something for dessert, but again, I knew neither of us would finish it (it's just DH and I). He's not a dessert person, anyway.

Looks great! Glad you had a super Thanksgiving. Iíve only had one Canadian Thanksgiving (back in 2010 when I was with friends in New Brunswick) but of course tons of US Thanksgivings and already wondering what Iíll be doing this year, especially with Covid restrictions.

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving! For the last 6 years or so we have only been 3 at our Thanksgiving table, so whether we downsize to just 2 this year isnít really an issue. We have roast duck, and all the side dishes are reasonably low carb. I make a ďproperĒ pumpkin pie because DH and Dear Brother beg for it. I have a very thin slice, and am good for another year. The question is still up in the air about whether DB will be joining us again this year; both he and we are, and have been, very conscious in our Covid avoidance tactics, so weíll see how things look at the end of November.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

I moved very recently, still living out of boxes to some degree . Relatives are scattered far and wide, and their own bubbles consist of children/grandchildren so I'm rather isolated physically. But still connecting socially .. we've all texted or called this weekend to stay in touch. It's okay really, I'm the only lc'er and holiday meals tend to be a minefield of sinful things

Even so, I'm preparing a nice dinner and looking forward to leftovers next week . Baked ham, sweet potato (plain, with butter), brussels sprouts and crustless lc pumpkin pie for dessert. Burp!

Happy Thanksgiving to our good neighbors and friends in the North.

I've visited Canada a dozen times and have always been treated as a welcome guest.

I wish you all the best.
