Where are we today ?
clic a pic to enlarge itWe had a bit of wind and rain overnight and more of that this morning until about noon. No matter we were busy here setting up the house with tables and chairs for 35 people. This is our first Canadian Thanksgiving dinner with Suzie's Family. Then the skies cleared and warmed up we were good for the rest of the day. Rose put 2-10 lb chickens in the electric roaster, and readied 15 lbs of potatoes and I heated up a 5 lb Black Forest Ham.
In the meantime I made up some fresh Cranberry sauce with orange zest to take to my daughter's tomorrow. For that recipe you can click HERE or my recipe blog top right side bar.

Now the feast was done, tidied up rinsed plates and load the dishwasher. We all back outside enjoying this perfect warm sunny afternoon. We enjoyed conversations, played yard games and overall had a great afternoon. A few had to leave fairly early to put some of the young ones down for a nap. Suzie's brother and his son had to leave for chores at the farm, Dairy cattle need to be milked.
