Happy thanksgiving to all u.s. Friends!
 
Although my Thanksgiving is long past, I just want to let you know that I am grateful for the support on these boards.

Wishing you all a Happy Turkey day and lots of fun and peace with your families!

gobble gobble, Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.

I'll be thankful to see the Saints pay back the Cowgirls.

Canada's thankgiving was 11 Oct. It's probably very similar to the US celebration though. There is lots and lots of food, including turkey.

Since I live in Germany now, I managed to avoid all the food temptations of thanksgiving last year. But this year we did celebrate thanksgiving (twice!!!) with some of our Canadian friends who also live here. I guess we had a lot to be thankful for!

You're welcome!

The thing I like about our Thanksgiving is we have a bigger break between it and Christmas, so we get a chance to work off the extra pounds. Our Thanksgiving is always on a Monday mid-October.

I like the fact you guys have the Thursday (if you can have the Friday ) off...it is nice to have a longer weekend.

We do the turkey thing but the French-fried onions and green bean dish isn't as common, although some do it...Sometimes we have ham since we also eat turkey for Christmas.

At my house we buy a turkey roll since we have a smaller family. If we have guests, we buy a bigger roll. They are usually really good and there are a lot less leftovers (I'm okay with a day or 2, not a week) and clean up. I started buying them because I had a wonky oven and now we prefer them.

I usually served smashed potatoes, homemade stuffing, turnip and a green vegetable...sometimes a green salad. I make my own cranberry sauce...my MIL likes the canned cranberries but I don't...too much sugar. I like eating the rest of it on toast like jam, the next morning or two.

Hope you all had a good day yesterday!

:) I cook them with o.j. too or put them right in my stuffing.
