Turkey Day

Last week-end, I celebrated Thanksgiving with my family for the first time. Seeing as we've been living in Canada for only a few years, this holiday is not really something we usually celebrate. However, we decided that the long week-end would be a great opportunity to try our hand at a stuffed turkey for the first time.

My mom cooked a huge bird and gravy following this recipe from Jamie Oliver and we ate it with what I'm sure is in no way traditional Thanksgiving food: jasmine rice and cucumbers-and-onions salad. Nevertheless, it was quite the homemade (read: green) feast and we all enjoyed it very much.

Of course we left some room for dessert as well, and this apple cake was the perfect fall-appropriate end to our meal. In fact, each of us went to get seconds later in the night.

I would say that following this, Thanksgiving might just become a yearly tradition for us too.
