While our Canadian family and friends are celebrating Thanksgiving this weekend, we had our own version. Our friends Maria and Tony (the mushroom farmer) came over for lunch. He brought over some of his delicious mushrooms and I stuffed and baked them with melted cheese. YUM! I also served cauliflower & broccoli soup sprinkled with croutons and cheddar cheese plus fresh homemade bread and butter. Kevin smoked some pork, too. It was so tender...and smokey! It wasn't exactly turkey with stuffing, but pretty darn close: it didn't take long before everyone gobbled it up! For dessert, my pineapple cake.
Although we can't share this holiday with our family back home, which saddens us, we're ever so thankful to have good friends here to remind us that we have so much to be grateful for. We might be geographically distant from our loved ones, but we hold them very close always, not just on this special weekend.
