“A day of General Thanksgiving to Almighty God for the bountiful harvest with which Canada has been blessed — to be observed on the 2nd Monday in October.”
Canadian Parliament, 31 January 1957
This year, I’m very grateful to be spending Canadian Thanksgiving not only with H., but with my friend Matea, who’s visiting us for the weekend from Croatia. To fit in with travel schedules, we’re having our dinner today, Saturday, rather than the traditional Sunday or Monday. Here is our menu:
Main: Turkey with stuffing and gravy, roast potatoes, roast carrots
Dessert: Apple and walnut crumble
Guten Appetit and Happy Thanksgiving one and all!
