Canadian Thanksgiving


Today is Thanksgiving Day in Canada. Harvest blessings and best wishes to everyone! My Rare One is cooking a big turkey dinner and a dozen friends are coming over later to help eat it. So hopefully there shouldn't be too many leftovers. We're serving everyone's favourite Thanksgiving dessert too!


Sometimes our eyes can be bigger than our stomachs, of course . . . .


. . . but when it comes to pumpkin pie, we can rely on our "dessert stomach" to kick in and save the day!


So go on, have that second (or third) piece of pie . . . we can do it!

Ha ha, I hope you enjoy yourself! The idea of dozens of people in my house wouldn't feel like much of a holiday! But have fun!!

Are you sure that's enough whipped cream? Looks kinda stingy to me :)

anne marie in philly said...

sounds like a fun time at your house; enjoy!

I prefer salmon or lasagna for TD cause I don't like turkey, but that's just me. I DO loves me a slice o pumpkin pie, but undressed (no whipped creme) please...and I just heard you scream in horror!

Happy Thanksgiving! I have to disagree with the whipped cream on the pie. I like pumpkin pie as it is, why ruin it with excessive whipped cream? The less cream, the more pie.

That is exactly how my hubby eats pumpkin pie! Happy Thanksgiving! Have a wonderful time. :)

Ahh the good old dessert stomach. It's saved my life on many an occasion. Didn't do much for that cake though. Have a happy thanksgiving Debra. Eat well and be merry.

And I will have to inform Hubby that he was correct about the dessert stomach. **le sigh** **just hate it when he's right!** :o)

I'll admit it; I don't like whipped cream. I think it tastes terrible. Besides, why eat a mountain of weird, sugary shaving foam when I can shove more pie into my dessert stomach?

I love it! Thank goodness I have a rather sturdy Dessert Stomach.
Happy Canadian Thanksgiving to you and yours, Deb!

The Happy Whisk said...

Hahahah, on the eye that said we can and we will. I love it. That's funny stuff. Glad you had a fun harvest weekend. Best time of year.

Anne O'Leary said...

It's so nice to know that you and your Rare One are sharing this day with friends. Enjoy your day!

Lisa said...

Happy Thanksgiving. Enjoy the feast.

Guillaume said...

Here it's just your regular Monday.:-( In Québec my parents often make a tourtière for Thanksgiving.

Jim said...

OH THANK GOD for that dessert stomach!! Used it today as a matter of fact!!
Enjoy your feast Debra!

lady M said...

Adam said...

Enjoy your Thanksgiving.

mistress maddie said...

A Happy Thanksgiving to you and all your Canadian readers!!!! I can't get used to hearing Thanksgiving and Halloween in the same month.

Overeating and calorie ingesting is patriotic on Thanksgiving. Anyone who pulls back from the table while they can still walk around (as apposed to heading for the nearest couch) should be boiled in their own pudding - pumpkin puccing.

Are you laying on the couch moaning in distress yet? ;)

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving... we had a slight problem here with the whipped cream. The person bringing desert couldn't find whipping cream in any of the near by stores, not even for ready money, so picked up a whipped cream in a can - gasp! - made from Coconut Milk for those who are lactose intolerant!!!!! The idea of a substitute for whipped cream on pumpkin pie was almost as vile as the substitute itself.

Fundy Blue said...

You've been on a roll these past few posts, Debra! So many great funnies. Trumpy Cat takes the Halloween prize for best costume. Your never ending federal election? Try south of your border if you want to experience election nightmares! Although Trump is at least providing comic relief! I've been resorting to that spare dessert stomach for weeks. Do you know how many wonderful sweets can be found in Victoria!? I hope your Thanksgiving Dinner was a blast!

JACKIESUE said...

Dawna said...

Sparkless said...

Happy Thanksgiving! It sounds like you will have a great time and will have to use that second stomach.

jadedj said...

OK, I missed this post yesterday. So, happy after your Thanksgiving Day. Indulge your left-over stomach. Love the proper way to each pumpkin pie.

Missy George said...

Good ones..HAppy Thanksgiving..Nothing better than turkey sandwiches!! Gotta at least have that left over..Enjoy..I don't love pumpkin pie, so that would work for me..

Ms Misantropia said...

My family has been joking about the dessert stomach since I can remember!

When I got my blood checked for the first time ever this year it all made sense - I have chronic low blood sugar. No wonder I'm always craving sweets!

bill lisleman said...

Dessert stomach - I never knew that! All these year believing what my uncle told me about a hollow leg. thanks
