Last weekend was thanksgiving. I’m gonna stop myself there. Before I start going on about the food, (because yes… this is a food blog) I’m just going to say that I love thanksgiving. Yes the food aspect is one of the reasons for that but I find it so great to have an excuse to be with all the people that you like. So I could say that I am thankful for all the people I know that make my life super enjoyable, thanks you guys!

Anyway, the way I see it, you get this meal about twice a year: thanksgiving and Christmas. So I am sure to make it last. Yes family and friends are important (don’t get me wrong, I love these people), but that is only the case as long as no one gets between me, my turkey and a full plate. So pretty much, I fell that turkey dinners happen way less than they should.

The food at thanksgiving is always amazing, and I love it all, yes… even the brussel sprouts, I honestly don’t know why so many people hate them. My favourite dish on thanksgiving is the stuffing, I could eat plate upon plate of the stuff without stopping; it is just to darn good. Then of course we get to dessert, the finest of meals. Mine consisted of a very large scoop a vanilla ice-cream (did I mention I love ice-cream) and a sampling of the three pies: a pumpkin pie made by our good friend, a chocolate tart made by me (there will be more on that later) and a apple pie made by the black rook bake-house in Vancouver, they rock! (seriously, Google them or something). All in all, it was a successful thanksgiving, I went home with a full stomach, fresh memories and ready for a long rest.

I re-started being non gluten non sugar today, and I realized that it totally sucks, but I will live through it! Even if it kills me. Bye!
