    That recipe looks amazing!

    last year we went over to a friends house for Canadian Thanksgiving. It was in October and a Sunday. She is from Canada, but her husband is in the military and is stationed here in Florida. She doesn’t have any family here so she really wanted to still have a huge Canadian Thanksgiving with all of her closest friends. I most certainly expecting “thanksgiving” type foodies, but nope! We didn’t even have turkey! It was like a mix of all kinds of food including, shrimp, and beef. Oh, and yes they had football on until it was time to eat!

    Lol oh girl. I’m Canadian and I’m totally with you on our lack of Thanksgiving OOMPF. First off, it just comes too early. I love the whole holiday season thing that the Americans got going on… but I guess we gotta do it early in Canada because it just gets so dang cold by November. Gah. Nevertheless, my family still celebrates with a turkey dinner and lots of good food. There’s still ways to make the most of it.

    Oh… and these bites look delicious 🙂

    Ha Ha, you’re too funny! I totally think you should be leaving in the states – at least during OUR Thanksgiving holiday.

    Hahahah this post made me giggle. I kind of like Canadian Thanksgiving, in it’s flexibility (that way you can go to 2 dinners if your significant other has one too!) and I’ve never been a fan of marshmallows or football 😉 I think it’s laid-backness and lack of focus is what makes it truly Canadian. I mean after all, all we want is an excuse to get together with family, eat rich food and be lazy right?

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend away!

    I’m very picky around apples – it has to be tangy and sweet, particularly green and peeled. Do you have a favorite apple? What?! Dual American & Canadian – lucky girl and Trader Joe’s awesome hehehe! YAY that we will be celebrating Thanksgiving on the same day – I can’t wait to see your Thanksgiving meals! These Apple Pie bites look scrumptious!

    I celebrate Thanksgiving with Doni and his family a lot, but my family don’t celebrate it at all, but my parents’ birthdays are around that time so I usually visit them. I simply can’t wait for Thanksgiving, for the past few years, 75% of the meals were vegan and delish!

    Happy Thanksgiving to you in Canada – haha!

    Haha this post made me laugh 🙂 Your feelings about Canadian Thanksgiving definitely seem justified, and the Trader Joe’s outing sounds like a brilliant alternative!
    Sweet potato + marshmallow = my all-time favorite Thanksgiving dish.
    Have a wonderful Wednesday my dear!

    I’m offended!!! Just kidding.

    I actually agree with you that I wish Canada made as big of a deal of Thanksgiving as Americans. That being said, my family does a pretty good job of celebrating it. We always have a big turkey feast at my grandma’s, including a trip to the local county fair beforehand. And then my parents, sister and I usually have a 2nd little celebration together just so that we can bake our own turkey for the sake of having leftovers haha.

    Hahaha, I actually never heard of Canadian Thanksgiving before – but it sounds kind of fun 😉 In Germany we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving at all, but I am enjoying a lot of the recipes and treats all fall through, so I guess that is all right. And regarding the apple pie bites: I would totally make these, but I have to admit the moment that I bring dried apple rings home they are gone. I am just too much of a fan of eating them by the handful.
