but i looooove a full spread of thanksgiving turkey dinner and jambaloney can attest to the fact that i can eat platefulls of turkey and gravy and stuffing and mashed and carrot and turnip for several days in a row - then i bust out the jams and start eating hot turkey sandwiches, cold turkey sandwiches, turkey poutine (it's at this point that i have to make more gravy from scratch as i like all of my servings of turkey to come in a soup bowl...as soup!). i can eat turkey everyday from canadian thanksgiving, to american thanksgiving (which we celebrate in november) and right up to xmas dinner. for 3 entire months of the year i can live off turkey and fixings!
it was an incredibly beautiful day......very warm.
cats were checked regularly for signs of being alive. and fed.
this one is just passing out,
we did a morning harvest:
and turned it into this:
the day called for a traditional thanksgiving dinner (lunch):
ahh! but the beach called,too.
and we decided to have a thanksgiving menu that we either grew, foraged or fished.
the beach was amazing as usual.
i know i will cry for turkey and fixins' tomorrow, but for tonight this was our thanksgiving dinner.
the last 2 beautiful trout that jambaloney caught at the end of the season, and we froze, for this very reason!
a tomatoe and cucumber salad from our garden (minus the lemon and oil) and mussels that jambaloney picked for me today.
one of the best things about harvesting is saving seeds...we love saving our own seeds year after year.
and then there is this experience keeping us interested - collecting nasturtium seeds. some to be saved as seed and some to be turned into "poor man's capers".
i'll let you know how they turn out!
happy canadian thanksgiving day to all!
