Happy thanksgiving from Montreal .. less than 2 hours from home. .. but a very different world. We’re up here staying with out good friends the Townsends. Max, Gabe and I drove up midday.. Diane came up last night with Deb to help with cooking.. and there was a whole lot of cooking. I thin there are about 18 folks here… and no one is going away hungry !
Our thanksgiving was traditional in many ways.. the males gathred around the tv.. but here video games (call of duty) took the place of football..
and the two best cooks I know held out in the kitchen.. after days of planning, it was a true feast !
my favorite part of the meal was the middle eastern first course.. hummus taramsalat, tabouli, wierd slaty rope cheese, olives , pickled horseradish, stuffed peppers.. YUM !!!!
matt did the carving..
while folks rested and built up their appetite for round 2
Then it was time for the main deal.. We held hands and went round the table and reflected on what we were grateful for.. many good feedings.. i’m grateful for family and friends present and absent ..
after round two.. came deserts.. amazing again !!!
then we all took over for clean up.. many hands made for light work..
lots of great leftovers for tomorrow.. not sure we can cross the border with anything.. we’ll see !
speaking of light work.. we all weighed in before and after. I think matt got the record with 4.5 pounds.. I only managed 1/2 pound !
then we all retired to the living room to talk and play games.. .. very fun
I am lying here thinking about and how grateful i am for all the good I have in my life . Hope you are enjoying your day as much
nite all nite sam.. you were with us tonight..
