Seriously? It's already Thanksgiving in Canada? The menu you posted, CWS, sounds mouthwatering delicious but why so many variations of pickles? Are pickles a tradition?

I guess it's earlier in Canada because Thanksgiving is basically a harvest festival and we're further north, so we harvest earlier.

I think it should be a 2 month celebration

Sounds like a plan.

I have a friend who calls Thanksgiving the beginning of "eating season". He says it starts with Thanksgiving, moves on the the Halloween chow down, followed by the Christmas party circuit. That is closely followed by Christmas, New Years and then a short break til the Valentines chocolate run. Depending on the timing, Easter can sometimes be in the eating season as well.

So...a solid 4 months of chowing down.

Okay, setting a menu was a bit tricky because my guest list kept changing - we are down to Our upstairs neighbours - 2 separate ones, one female, one male, but it is not a set-up. We just haven't all gotten together for awhile and the young man is going to have to move soon. DH's brother will be coming and maybe bringing his 3 sons.

So, we are having
- a ham,
- a small turkey
- rice stuffing for DH
- bread and sausage stuffing for everyone else
- my homemade cranberry sauce (I am making a double batch so PF can have half!)
- mashed potatoes
- cornstarch gravy
- corn
- curried cauliflower
- broccoli salad
- two pumpkin pies - one gluten/dairy free and one regular
- my chocolate birthday cake that I decided to leave until there were others to share it with!

On second thought, I want what she is having

And the pounds go from the table directly to the hips.
