Why so many variations of pickles? Because we made lots of different kinds and need to start eating them and the DH likes different pickles with his turkey than I like.

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!
Wow, LP! You'll have leftovers for the week! Sounds delish!

Today is also Columbus Day! Among his other accomplishments, I learned to type using his method. First I discover it, then I land on it! Happy Canadian "T-Day".

Thanks Whiskadoodle!

I've got my turkey in the brine for a little while longer. The green bean casserole is prepped and ready to go. I'm debating on whether to do root veggies or not. I'll put out some pickles and a big salad. Dessert is still flexible. I've done mince tarts, and apple crisp for the last big dinner, so I might do something a bit chocolatey. I also have about 5 lemons to use. (I know I know, what else is new?)

Ditto here. But I have a question. Do they still teach touch typeing in schools? If not, our kids are being cheated. Typeing minimum of 40 wpm is still a requirement for employment in a lot of major companies. And they frown on two finger typeing, no matter how fast you go. My girlfriend worked in HR for a lot of years. She said that two finger typeing does not look professional. It lowers your score on demeanor. Hmmm...

I want to be Canadien today and go to someone's home for dinner. Sage bread dressing, dark turkey meat, twice baked potatoes, gravy, lots of gravy, peas, carrots, and pie for dessert. Pumpkin pie and blueberry. Then a place to take a nap. I will help in the kitchen as long as I can take a nap after.

Oooooo! Gingerbread! Did you do the cake? I might do that! Good thought. Dinner is at 4 at CWS's place (that's 2pm my time) so you can finish there, and hop a plane over to my place. Dinner is at 6 here. There WILL be gravy...lots and LOTS of gravy.

Everything is done fairly small scale, but I need to have dishes DH can eat and not all of those are appetizing for others. Also, for some reason Thanksgiving leftovers are my favourite - always have been!
