So, being good children, we phoned my parents - who were at the time making their way around Vancouver Island and had already had two turkey dinners- and informed them we missed them and wanted to celebrate Thanksgiving with them and my brother. At a time that was convenient to all. November 22nd to be exact. (Yes, my family generally has to plan 6 weeks in advance.)
Then someone (OK, maybe it was me), said we were actually celebrating American Thanksgiving in honour of my sister-in-law, who live in L.A.
So, I thought I'd share what we ate that day. And, since I've gotten into the habit of taking my camera only into my own kitchen and not other people's, I have absolutely no pictures of any food-type stuff at all. So, you can just imagine it in your head.
I should mention that my Dad made the turkey (on the barbeque!), my Mum made the stuffing, and I made everything else.
Italian Sausage Stuffing
Brussel Sprout Leaves with Bacon
Green Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette
Pumpkin Mouse Parfait
Happy Thanksgiving to all the Americans in the crowd!
