Happy Canadian Thanksgiving

We've already done two Canadian Thanks giving dinners. One, at our place on Saturday night, with about 15 of our family members. Roast turkey and cranberries, sausage and apple stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, pumpkin pie with whipped cream, and the usual accompaniments. The second was at a friend's house on Sunday night, again about 15 of us, but this time the menu included Ham, shwartzies potatoes, carrot soup, brussel sprouts and brocolli, and ice cream and pecan and apple pies.

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!

I feel like I have 12 kg of turkey sitting on my chest. Either that or I'm having a heart attack. Oh, too much food....

Ooh! Pie!

A Paladin In Citadel said...

LOL! Ain't that the truth! There's always room for pie...

We often refer to the Schwarzies potatoes as 'heart attack in a casserole dish'

Hi Paladin in Citadel - This is Ivy, Tim's wife from Gothridge Manor. The picture of the turkey looks yummy.

Tonight I'm roasting a whole chicken, with corn, gravy and homemade mash. So so good.

Wishing you a most excellent Thanksgiving.

Dinner sounds delicious! I'd drop by unannounced and pull up a chair at the table, but that would (a) be uncool, and (b) cost me a pretty penny in airfare.

Appreciate the thanksgiving wishes!

We'd love to have you. Please do bring some shwartzies potatoes along. I don't know what they are but if they cause heart-attacks, I'm thinking they taste pretty darn good.

2 lbs frozen hash browns
2 cups sour cream
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup onion, fried
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
2 cups cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated

Mix everything but the parm together, put it in a casserole dish, sprinkle the parm on top, and bake at 350 for an hour.

Eat. Have heart attack.

:)

Happy Thanksgiving.
Lots of family around and many things to be thankful for.

The Happy Whisk said...

Much thanks. Printing the recipe now.

Is there a good substitute for the mushroom soup? Would cream of celery work? Tim doesn't like shroons.

About time to put in the chicken. I love the smell of roasted chicken.

The Happy Whisk said...

Got my chicken in the oven. All seasoned and yummy. I was thinking, maybe a cream of chicken would work (since I can't get Tim to eat anything with mushrooms).

Ah ... the house is already smelling wonderful. Love it.

Again, thanks for the recipe and Happy Thanksgiving.

Same to you Pat. Enjoy the day!

I sometimes do one cream of chicken and one cream of mushroom. I think you can do two cream of chicken and it would work perfectly.

It's a good day to be from Calgary. The Flames laid the wood to my beloved Kings last night and today it's Turkey day. A fine day, indeed!

Gobble gobble!

Johnni said...

Happy Thanksgiving. Seeing as the only relative I have in Canada is my mom, there was no turkey. I did make lamb chops yesterday though and well "stuffing" Haha!

I know there are a lot of Halloween themed RPG games that can take place, but what about Thanksgiving? Hunt for the great Dinner Rok?

What, so they're now 1, win 1 loss? Anyday is Turkey day ... are Turkeys even available this early in the States?

Gobble, gobble indeed!

Are you in Canada, Johnni? If so, I must move you over to my Canadian blogsroll.

I think the appropriate Thanksgiving game is metagaming's "A fistful of Turkeys"

Rognar said...

Thanks. We had turkey last night with friends. My doc's got me on a diet, so I had to take it easy, but it was all delicious.

Regamer said...

Happy Thanksgiving, Yesterday was our night for Turkey dinner, I haven't felt that full in oh say about a year.

Johnni said...

Indeed I am. Not too far from you actually, being in Edmonton and all.

I was so full, I could hardly move on Saturday and Sunday.

I get up to Edmonton about once a month (work related). Any good gaming stores?

Andreas Davour said...

I never managed to get hold of a turkey, since the weekend was so full of things. Damn, it do look tasty on that picture...

Johnni said...

I do all my gaming purchases at Warp 1 that's on Whyte Ave and 99 St. Don't know if you'd be able to really amuse yourself there though when you come up as I've heard amazing things about Sentry Box.
