Thanksgiving Recap

I'm so mad that I didn't take any pictures of the delicious Thanksgiving meal that I made this year! It was so lovely looking and tasting!
On Sunday, M and I invited a bunch of people over to help us celebrate "Canadian" Thanksgiving, which is ya know, the same as "American" Thanksgiving, sans football. I logged about 10+ hours of cooking which is kinda crazy to think about. Anyway, I find it really handy to look back at my blog to find recipes I've previously made, so here's the lineup with the recipes linked where possible...

1. Turkey
2. Ham (with mustardy glaze)
3. Stuffing (stovetop, from a box)
4. Gravy (package from the turkey)
5. Cranberries (recipe on back of package)
9. Sweet Potatoes (lots of compliments on this dish)
12. Apple Pie (with vanilla ice cream)
13. Pumpkin Pie (frozen, with whipped cream)
14. Tutti Fruity (recipe to come.. one day soon)

Actually, I did take two photos with my phone. These make me weep with joy.
Till next year!


  1. Good for you guys for keeping the Canadian traditions alive south of the border! I'm so glad your dinner turned out well. I enjoyed the phone calls from M for tips and help. It is hard word isn't it! But so worth it when it turns out well.

    I am going to try that sweet potato recipe by the way, it looks fabulous!

  2. Thanks for the tips, Marina! I liked the ham glaze, yum! Still working on the soup, which reminds me I need to get some veggies for it tonight.

    The sweet potato dish was pretty much like dessert! I cut back on some of the bad stuff (sugar) and it was still delicious!

  3. Thanks for sharing all the recipes, J!! You are becoming a great cook. I'm very interested in trying the carrots, ham glaze and sweet pototoes. I think your apple pie looks wonderful!!
