Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!
I'm in Manitoba right now, visiting my Mom in the nursing home. We're celebrating Thanksgiving in our own way. I'm sneaking in a pumpkin pie from Safeway so Mom can eat the filling with a spoon. Since her last stroke a couple of years ago, she can only eat pureed or soft food, so eating the crust is not an option. But the filling is safe. That's the best part anyway!
The taste she misses most is chocolate so I also bring her a small Tim Horton's hot chocolate every day that I'm here. She enjoys these little treats tremendously. My only regret is that she can't have them more often.
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone who is celebrating it today!
