October tradition: Canadian Thanksgiving

When somebody asks me what my favorite food is..... I usually want to answer with "Thanksgiving."  Ha!  OMG friends I love Thanksgiving.  I am fortunate enough to have a fab Canadian as a good friend, who celebrates a SECOND THANKSGIVING!!!!!  Whoa.  Whoa.  Actually, it comes before ours in the year, but still, I get TWO Thanksgivings!!! HOORAY!

Each year she slaves in her kitchen cooking close friends a feast at the beginning of October.  This year, it was ALL about the dessert.  I think we had like, 6 different pies.  Sounds pretty good eh?











This dinner is something that I look forward to each year.  It truly marks the beginning of fall in our family, and I am so so thankful to be a part of it.  It's pretty rad to have a Thanksgiving with friends, where you can just laugh and drink wine, and eat amazing food.  Then, the next month I get another one of these dinners!  Quite a different experience with my cray-cray fam though. :)

Have a great Thursday guys!

Trish

  2. Wait, I know you & you know a Canadian, & I'm friends with another Canadian blogger-- so next year can I have two Thanksgiving too? I mean, our countries are neighbors & it sort of breeds camaraderie, right?
    I want pies.

  4. It all looks so lovely!
    We don't have thanksgiving here in the UK. Which is a bummer.
    I'd love it! We're a bit rubbish with things like that over here, even pie's aren't as celebrated like they should be. (And I live for pie's, seriously)

  5. Reminds me of New Year 200... 5(?). I was Estonia, and thanks to the time difference, I could celebrate the Swedish new year, the Estonian AND as there were a lot of Russians at the party, I celebrated the Russian new year as well.
