Happy Canadian Thanksgiving to you all.
I’m sharing my holiday spread with you today. To all my Canadian friends I hope your weekend was every bit as good as mine. And for my American friends here is something to look forward to and maybe drool over a little (no worries, I’ll be drooling over your yummy food in a little while).
We ended up having an impromptu family get together/dinner, but in my opinion the best and funnest things in life are unplanned.
Since it was proving to be impossible to align everyones schedules, we were actually not going to have a Thanksgiving dinner, but with some last minute change of plans for a few people, we pulled a dinner out of our butts in a matter of 2 hours.
Due to lack of planning we never had turkey or stuffing but good food was to be had by all, not to worry.
So if you aren’t feeling like turkey next year or perhaps you want to stray away from tradition, I’ve got just the menu FOR YOU.
This years Menu:
- Caesar salad (my mom-in-law has the KILLER dressing that I cannot wait to share)
- Baked acorn squash slices (recipe to come on the blog soon cuz it was waaaay delicious)
- Creamy mashed potatoes (my mom makes it like no other)
- Ribeye BBQ streak (done with hardwood charcoal)
- Fried corn
- Spicy carrots (also on my to-share list)
For dessert we had pumpkin pie and apple crumble with lemon tea. Mmmm
The table decorations have been gathered from the crisper in the fridge, clippings from the trees around the yard, and picking up some pretty leaves that cover our grass (plus corn husks that I found lying around in the decoration box). Add a strand of fairy light and BAM .
The amazing polka dot table cloth is from Wolf & Irving (it’s stain and wrinkle resistant btw (angels singing))
Feel free to pin any of the above photos 😀
Pour a glass full of wine and you have yourself a very merry THANKSGIVING.
