i know that American Thanksgiving isn't until tomorrow...and that some people will be celebrating on the weekend...but we decided to do our American Thanksgiving today. (we did 3 Canadian Thanksgiving Dinners in a row in October - but who could ever have enough Thanksgivings????)
and isn't it a beautiful day to celebrate?!?!?? absolutely gorgeous out there today!
so why are celebrating American Thanksgiving today? because tomorrow, friday, saturday we are expecting super gorgeous weather and will not want to be heating up the house with cooking. plus, with the turkey and all the fixins being ready today - it means we can eat leftovers for the next few days and truly enjoy the last gorgeous days of autumn!
i already made the giblet soup - my favourite part of turkey dinner - except for gravy - i looooove gravy! but i love my giblet soup, too! after we made the giblet soup and had a delicious bowl each....then it was on to the stuffing. then we stuffed the bird. and put the bird in the oven. in about 4 hours we are going to be gorging on turkey and all the fixins - yummeh - i can barely wait!
so far this is not looking like a "SciFiChick kind of Thanksgiving". fingers crossed. but this morning when i was checking my email for an email from my sister Helga - i noticed that in our bloglist that SciFiChick had a post up about her messing up their Thanksgiving meal last year. and as i had also messed up our Thanksgiving last year - that's why i called last year's dinner a "SciFiChick kind of Thanksgiving".
jeesh, Sci, i sure do hope you didn't jinx me with your latest post - bahahahahahaha!
anyway - so far it's looking like a pretty awesome day. we will get in the hottub, take many walks, read some awesome books that my sister Helga sent us, prep the carrots, turnip, brussel sprouts, smashed potatoes, and of course, gravy - and then we will be stuffing our faces for the rest of the day!
and saying Grace and giving thanks. we have so much to be thankful for. not the least of which is all of our wonderful friends that we have made here on this dumb little blog.
we will be thinking of you all. and stuffing our faces - teehee.
Happy American Thanksgiving to everyone!
