Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  Despite lacking a turkey or any of the normal trappings of fall, Kristen, Vanessa, Ali, Dye and I got together tonight at our volunteer house for Thanksgiving dinner.  Between us we managed to create an eclectic (but very tasty) meal of BBQ pork, garlic mashed potatoes, pita and hummous, homemade spring rolls, miso soup, greens and a no-bake variation on pumpkin pie, which we were all too stuffed to actually get to tonight.  Unfortunately Vanessa and Kristen both weren’t feeling great today, and didn’t really have a chance to indulge as much as the rest of us, but it was still fun to have everyone together for the holiday.  Good practice for Christmas as well, which I’m sure will in no way resemble any Canadian holiday experience I’ve had before!

Hope you all enjoy your Thanksgiving with family and friends.
