We hosted Thanksgiving dinner at our place this year for the first time! We had a few friends over since our families are in Ottawa and we didn't make the trip back.
I litterally felt like Martha Stewart - cook cook cook, clean, cook! I definitely think we succeeded in our first Thanksgiving feast (even made turkey soup today!). Here's my weekend in food:
Stuffing is probably my favourite thing about turkey dinner...the Mr. was worried we wouldn't have enough bread but I think once it was cut we both saw the huge amount we had to work with!
Yes, I still put the stuffing IN the turkey. In my mind it's the only way. (PS - we had the PERFECT amount of stuffing for the 7kg turkey we had!)
All cooked up! YUMM
I made the pumpkin pie on Saturday night to save time. I am not sure what caused the crack in the middle (slightly over cooked??) but it tasted delicious. Our guests brought 2 pies from Yitz's deli here in Toronto and they were top notch!
The dinner was very fun, and delicious! Everything went really well and we were happy to have such great company for our first hosted Thanksgiving dinner. To top off the weekend, I made cinnamon buns for this morning:
This is how they look out of the oven...then you flip them over and you get:
Just to clarify, we hit the gym on Sunday morning and went for a long bike ride today in the Don Valley- definitely had to be active with all that food!
Hope all of you in Canada had a nice weekend! FYI...my posting might be a bit light this week, it's a short week so bound to be busy at work and I'm out of the office on training Thursday and Friday. Have a good week everyone!
