Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  Just a quiet day with my Mom, Colin and Ella.  Belinda and Stefan can’t come up and Colin’s family don’t get together now that his Mom is gone.  Since we only have Grandma coming I didn’t want to cook up one of my big turkeys, so I’m doing a beef roast instead.  Everything very low key -I came down with Ella’s cold on Friday and I’m still so stuffy.

Monday:

freezer sandwiches

roast beef

Tuesday:

roast beef sandwiches

sweet & sour meatballs (didn’t make them Sunday)

Wednesday:

calico corn chowder

BBQ pork buns

Thursday:

grilled cheese

leftover meatballs

Friday:

tomato soup

chicken tika masala

Saturday:

Taste of the Valley

Sunday:

beef stroganoff

We had a very Happy Thanksgiving weekend.

We are very thankful for Auntie Belinda and Uncle Stefan for driving up from Scarborough to spend the weekend with Ella.  She was so excited on Saturday when they arrived.  I think she was even more excited than in the morning when she and Grandma went to Ottawa for the grand opening of the American Girl Boutique.

We are so VERY thankful for Grandma!  She’s always ready to come over and spend time with us and is there whenever we need her.

And I’m very thankful for my darling Colin.  Not only does he work so very hard to take care of our family, but he also put up with the Xbox takeover of the television this weekend.  Ella and Uncle Stefan love to play video games when they are together.  They hadn’t been up for a while, so Ella had so much to show Uncle Stefan.

So what’s on the menu this week?

Monday:

sandwiches

pork chops

Tuesday:

hot dogs

leftover chicken casserole

Wednesday:

perishky

spaghetti

Thursday:

corn chowder

meatball Stroganoff

Friday:

French toast

leftover casserole

Saturday:

leftover meatballs

Sunday:

chicken paprikash

Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving

 

I know it’s technically Thanksgiving tomorrow.  But since today we are celebrating and tomorrow is just another working day here on the farm I’m wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!

I don’t think I ever remember a thanksgiving weekend this warm.  Last year was nice but this year was nearly humid.  It was certainly toasty with the oven on yesterday.  I’m not sure why people make such a big deal about roasting turkey.  After it is stuffed, just put in the oven till the meat thermometer says it’s done.  If you put enough butter on the skin, you really don’t even have to baste it.

This has to be a first in my life, Thanksgiving supper on the verandah!  The temperature was beautiful and the sun stayed up long enough.  There were a few bugs, but at least the bees stayed away until after dessert.

So here’s the centrepiece.  I think it turned out quite well.  Colin got my big bushel gourd cut and stained and it makes a great display bowl.

 

During supper we had unexpected guests.  A flock of snow geese flew by and landed in the neighbour’s field.  It was amazing how close Colin was able to get in the truck.  Right up to the fence line.  I’ve never seen snow geese before.

 

What’s Ella thankful for?  Her second tooth fell out and the tooth fairy is coming again.  Momma’s thankful she doesn’t have to see it pointing sideways anymore  🙂
