Happy Thanksgiving Canada! Who's coming to dinner?

Its going to be a small one for us this weekend. Just the 4 of us and the grammas. I still have the giant turkey (we like leftovers) and Bugs is going to try out the Pumpkin Caramel Tart in the latest Fine Cooking. I'm trying to decide on apple pie or something else that is suitably caloric and bad for us.

So Canadians, are you hosting or visiting? What's on the table?

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours Alix! After that huge anniversary spread you made for your anniversary you might appreciate a more relaxed Turkey Day.

Hmm, I'm not Canadian and not in Canada, but I see an excuse for something turkey this weekend.

I'll be roasting a chicken. I might invite a friend. I have to decide if I want to stuff it.

Tricky, but is it okay to say Happy Thanksgiving from a Brit?

I say HT to Americans, and they are okay with it, so I hope it is okay to say I hope you have a lovely time?

We all appreciate a HT Katy. Thanks! And anyone who wants to make the trip can come on up. I have a very big birdie for only a few of us.

I have to make a green bean casserole for Bugs, but I want to do another veggie side. Something not too involved, but more than a steamed veg. Any thoughts?

I like to make a medley of roasted onions, carrots and Brussels sprouts sprinkled with a little balsamic vinegar. Mmmmm. Happy Thanksgiving!

It's okay as long as you did not participate in the War of 1812...

I think you might be sailing a little to-o-o close to the wind there! If I were you I'd quit while you're behind

Just think, if we hadn't been rather preoccupied at the same time with the activities of that nasty little Frenchman and not able to give you our full attention you might be part of the British Empire now. You wouldn't have such nice teeth but your spelling might be better :-D :-D

I have a turkey brining. To go with it--wildrice stuffing, braised leeks, squash, rot kohl, baked potatoes, and I haven't decided if I'm making a pumpkin pie or not--I am not terribly fond of pumpkin anything. I might make an apple pie instead. Only the two of us, but I'll have leftovers next week and for the freezer.
