Thanksgiving dinner

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Recipes and Food

I’ve been locked out of my own blog for some reason. Long story, but I can’t update it in the usual way so I am using a workaround to post this. Hopefully it doesn’t disappear into the ether. Sigh. I’ve been dealing with some technical issues and it’s really starting to wear on me.

We had our Thanksgiving dinner yesterday and you know what, I didn’t take a single photo. On one hand I am a little sad about that. I think these moments are worth documenting, but at the same time, in hindsight I am happy that I was able to put down my iPhone and STEP AWAY for a bit. I think my brain is better for it, actually.

I DID, however, want to post our menu today… mostly for my own benefit so I don’t lose the recipes. :)

For dessert there was pumpkin pie and apple crisp. Suffice it to say we were stuffed and there are tons of leftovers. Oh well. I guess we have our meals planned for the next few days…

As for today, we are aiming to go on a family hike, destination TBD.

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (18) and Sarah (16). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
