Got my cranberry and stuffing done last night… Pip will inspect the bird shortly and once approved I will start prepping tonight’s Thanksgiving dinner. (Yea, we always do it on the Sunday)

        Early is good!

        As long as there’s lots of pumpkin pie, my favorite.

        I do the turkey circuit for our version and then when the American one roles around I go to a pub that has the good sense to serve up turducken. Mmmmmmm, mmmmmmm, good.

    13 lb turkey in my propane smoker this morning with hickory chunks – should be done this afternoon. (6 hrs @ 250 F)

  • andycanuck

    Sunday dinners here too.

  • I have to do some baking tonight.

    I’m thinking pumpkin bread pudding and a chocolate pecan pie with salted pecan caramel topping.

    Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

    Going with roast beef this year we will have turkey for Christmas.

    Thanksgiving is a manifestation of white colonial rule in North America. You should be ashamed, and now feminist Trudeau will have to apologize for your actions. And of course millions will have to be given to indian groups in Toronto. But I will over look it because I am roasting a wild turkey I shot out back the other day. I even have some home made bread for stuffing from the Mennonites next door.

        I’d love to see a post on the differences between the two Thanksgivings and histories behind them.
        Our Thanksgiving was both a minor regional holiday (New England), or proclaimed one-time events (Washington’s Thanksgiving) until President Lincoln declared an annual one in 1863 and the FDR more or less standardized it and made the date permanent (4th Thursday of November).
        Canada obviously has a different history for the holiday.

          I assume that Thanksgiving as it exists today is just a formalization of the harvest festival, which has existed in all agrarian societies since time immemorial.

            The Haida and the Mikmaks conducted major thanksgiving rites on common council grounds between these two first nations. Oral traditions and tales suggest these “Thanksgivings” existed prior to the construction of the Egyptian pyramids under the supervision of their Black overlords.


        • Thanksgiving is very low key relative to the USA, it’s just another long weekend that has a turkey dinner added.

          I know in the States it is a much bigger deal, heralding the Christmas season. I was shocked when I first started selling into the US to find out how many people book off for the entire week or close to it.

    A pre-stuffed cooked-from-frozen turkey is the only way to go. Leaves you plenty of time to look after all the other dinner details.

    • That works! We usually get a fresh one.

      • John

        Putting extra time and energy into all the side dishes makes for a really good meal.

    Is there a betting pool if PM Trudeau will show off turkey-themed socks?

    Happy Thanksgiving, y’all. We’ll be enjoying some of your weather, because it appears that someone in Alberta left the gate open again and my part of Texas will be 35 F Monday night.

    • Happy Thanksgiving! I bet Justin will wear gay socks.
