Happy Thanksgiving to you as well. Don't eat to much turkey or you won't be able to reach the table for the dessert.

May your stuffing be tasty;

May your stuffing be tasty; May your turkey plump.
May your potatoes and gravy have never a lump.
May your yams be delicious and your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner stay off your thighs! cool

I am thankful

I am thankful for this sunny and warm Thanksgiving Monday. It allows the use of motorcycle therapy to help me recover from yesterday's utter failure to exercise restraint at the dinner table. grin

Columbus Day

Although we Canucks celebrate Thanksgiving today, you Americans have Columbus Day on the same day. So technically you get to celebrate anyway.

Merry Columbus Day to all our American friends!

I had no clue that Canadians

I had no clue that Canadians celebrated their own version of Thanksgiving. Sorry for my ignorance...I used to live less than an hour from the border too and frequently traveled to Canada so it's not like I'm clueless. Don't know why I never picked up on this tidbit. Anyway, now that my curiosity is piqued, do you celebrate it with a big turkey dinner and family like we do here in the states? Is it as big of a deal as turkey-day here is in the US?

Turkey

I can't wait until the end of November for turkey. I have it on the grocery list NOW. I want turkey!!!

Little known fact. Thanksgiving is based on the Pilgrims but it was an English holiday in England long before the US adopted it and connected it to the Pilgrims in New England.

It is exactly the same, big turkey dinner with all the family, etc. Biggest difference is we don't have Black Friday the next day so we can work off all the calories by walking the malls and electronic outlets.

Oh yea, that's the other difference, we haven't figured out how to have our Thanksgiving on a Thursday like you America's so we only get a 3 day long weekend instead of 4. grin

I will never forget the best turkey dinner I ever had... as a kid I did some farm work, for a turkey producer... baling straw... one evening, the farm wife made a fresh turkey dinner. I've not had anything that good since.

Turkey

kch50428, I also worked on a turkey farm in NW Iowa many times as a young teen; herding them from feeding lot to feeding lot, loading them on the truck on their way to market, cleaning up the pens, etc. The farmer and his family were great to work for and always nice to me, but the experience had the opposite effect on me as you. I learned to hate the filthy stinky turkeys. I can't stand the site of the damned things, can't get past the smell when they are cooking. So I will be having something other than turkey for my Thanksgiving dinner. smile

Very Similar

The observance is very similar. Turkey dinner with family is traditional. One significant difference is that we never really bought into the "candied yams" thing (which aren't actually "yams", they're "sweet potatoes", but don't get me started on that... wink ).

Thanksgiving in our home...

means a family dinner. Everybody brings something for dinner. Grandma does the turkey and stuffing, yams (complete with a roasted nut topping), cranberry sauce (makes her own) and mashed potatoes. One d-i-l always makes a great pumpkin pie from scratch - meaning she grinds her own pumpkins. The other d-i-l brings salad, buns and wine.

Grandpa (that's me) gets to eat as much as he can and then has a nap just before dishes duty... I have much to be thankful for.

Happy Thankgiving all, Canadians in October and Americans in November,

Happy Thanksgiving

turkeys

I almost hit a flock of turkeys a few nights ago. Could have ended up with dinner for a month, and a nasty repair bill.

Happy thanksgiving!

How does it change the taste? Does it still taste like turkey?

Deep Fry

I ate a few years ago down south a turkey that was deep fried and enjoyed it so much that I immediately went out and bought myself a kit.

It's the look on my family and friends faces when I pull out the burner, propane tank and then the bird. razz

Lots of good articles that can be found on the net concerning the above if ever anyone is interested.

smoked turkey does taste a little different

I brined my turkey in an apple brine 24hrs. and then I smoke it using a combination of apple & cherry wood. The taste and texture is a little different from the brining & smoking. The meat has a smoother texture and the taste is affected by the type of wood used. The meat has a pink layer to it caused by the smoking which is normal. See link.

Thanksgiving

Could not have asked for a better weekend for travelling with a GPS, or just sitting around watching the leaves and eating turkey. The temp hit 25 degrees C (that's 77 on the "Old Fred" scale for our friends south of the 49th parallel).

I sadly didn't have turkey

I sadly didn't have turkey this weekend. I will have to go grab one now for cheaper smile.

We had Prime Rib... so not too much of a loss.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to all Canadians. We are thankful for our country's friendship with Canada.

After turkey dinner

Time to get my teeth cleaned!

In Regards To

Merry Columbus Day to all our American friends!

If you do not know it Columbus never set foot on the North American continent but started the massive genocide of natives and the importing of slaves to the western hemisphere.

PIE

I always make walnut pie for Thanksgiving dinner. It's like pecan pie but made with walnuts since they are a local crop. I considered not making it a couple years ago and was told by family that I MUST make it. It does seem to disappear rapidly. smile
