WIAW: Canadian Thanksgiving

Since we celebrated Thanksgiving last weekend I thought I would share photo’s from our dinner. Being the busy family that we were that day, I took no pictures as I forgot my camera behind but I’ve stolen borrowed photo’s that my sister took; so photo credit goes out to my sister 🙂 Thanks Laura.

Drinks & Decorations

There were so many people  (17) that we had to set up two tables in separate rooms and the food stayed in the kitchen. It was my mom’s side of the family, friends of mine and friends of my brother’s who came to dinner.

It’s always a big crowd for Thanksgiving in our house. In the past (separate years) we’ve had a family from South Africa and two University girls from British Columbia (other side of Canada) come celebrate with us). Always a great time!

Turkey, mashed potatoes AND cream cheese potatoes *amazing*, carrots, corn, peas, stuffing, sweet potatoes and gravy.

But more important … the deserts. Three pies including my Vegan Apple Pie.

Not shown – chocolate cheese cake and Queen-ann squares (heaven).

Those were most of our eats for Thanksgiving dinner.

There was also a tofurky, vegan cream cheese potatoes, and vegan stuffing for Sai.

And then we had left overs Monday 🙂

  1. Ahhh that’s one of my favorite things about Thanksgiving- when my large family has to cram into 1 room but we overfill it and stretch out into 2 rooms! So much fun and love! When we have Thanksgiving at my house, there’s at least 22 people!

  3. 13 of us at the cottage for Thanksgiving. I ate the usual Thanksgiving stuff, though it was one-handed as my two-year old insisted on sitting on my lap to eat his Cheerios. Yes, he ate Cheerios while the rest of us feasted. His picky eating usually bothers me but, on that day, I admit that I was glad that there was more pie for me.

    • Sounds like a great time! Oh cheerios can be so tasty sometimes 🙂
      Our oldest daughter was a picky eat it seemed like FOREVER, she is now in the last few months is trying more foods: spinach, red/orange/yellow peppers!
