THANKSGIVING in CANADA comes EARLIER THAN IN THE USA

Canada celebrates Thanksgiving the 2nd Monday of each October.  This year was particularly special for us and we had such a lot to give thanks for!

Emo's Eating Emporium was once again the gathering place and, even though we had 4 who couldn't make it, we had a very enjoyable meal and as per our norm, we were able to present a celebratory atmosphere:

 

Even the napkins were folded in "Turkey" style, lol

We served two different turkey dishes:  Red Wine Braised Turkey legs (drumstick & thighs) plus a

Bacon Weave Turkey Porchetta (dry brined and wrapped around Fennel & fresh Sage).

They both cooked to an incredible and flavourful moistness and were well received!

My favourite dish of the night was the Southwestern Roasted Rainbow Carrots with Cilantro - YUM YUM

There were also Squashed Red Potatoes with Garlic butter, Broccoli Salad, Barley Salad with Bacon, Maple Pecans & Apricot Vinaigrette and fresh hot rolls.  I wished I'd baked inside them, what my guests were thankful for - next year for sure!!

For dessert we enjoyed individual Lemon Cheesecake Pies with fresh blueberries -  light & refreshing after a heavy meal!

If you're thinking about selling, I'd love to meet with you and provide a Market Analysis and go over my Marketing Plan - it is the little things that make the difference.**
