Jour de l'Action de grâce

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!!!

In Canadian parliament, Thanksgiving is to be celebrated on the 2nd monday of every October to give thanks to God for a bountiful harvest. However, I'm sure nowadays it's celebrated in a non-religious manner like we do here in America.  I'm not Canadian nor am I American, but the beauty about this holiday is that no matter its origins can be celebrated by anyone who is thankful...for whatever it is they're thankful for.

Anyways, if you can't already tell from reading my blog I find myself very drawn to other cultures including their cuisine. In the case of The Great White North, a typical Thanksgiving menu is pretty similar to one you'd find here in America.

Beet Soup 

Roast Turkey with Cornbread Stuffing

Cranapple Relish

Brussels Sprouts 

Mashed Potatoes 

Burnished Squash Wedges 

Pumpkin Pie 
(my favorite fall dessert!)

I'd like to personally thank Canada for awesome maple syrup, HOCKEY, good bacon, and for being awesome neighbors up north. Those are of course, stereotypical things Canada is known for. I'm sure there are more that can be noted for like FREE HEALTHCARE, Something us Americans can only dream of :(  I am genuinely thankful for all those things (especially hockey lol), so please don't be offended if you are in fact Canadian and reading this.
