    Those apple pie bites look tasty!!!
    I love Thanksgiving – sometimes I think I like it more than Christmas because it is more relaxing. This year (as in many past), my younger brother and his family are coming to spend most of the week with us. There will be plenty of food, drink, Wii/XBox, shopping, laughing, working out – it will just be perfect. And then when they leave on Saturday or hopefully not till Sunday, I will spend the rest of of the weekend decorating for Christmas!!
    Hopefully you have plans to be in the US for Thanksgiving!!!

    Well, I didn’t know any of those facts regarding Canadian Thanksgivings so thank you for sharing, er venting. 🙂
    I like Thanksgiving because it means we get to be fat and lazy and that’s what American’s do best! Haha. I kid. We’re not lazy.

    These bites look delicious! Have fun at Trader Joes! 🙂

    Clearly it is YOU who needs to make a cookbook 🙂 I could just sink my teeth into some of these buddies.

    Canadian Thanksgiving sounds… depressing. Haha. What is Thanksgiving without football (even though I don’t like the sport I couldn’t imagine my holidays without talk of football!), some type of sweet potato casserole, and why don’t they know when to celebrate it? How odd.

    My favorite Thanksgiving tradition is to drive to West Virginia to see all of my country cousins. Lol. They would balk if they heard me say that, and I never would 🙂 But I just love sitting down with my dad’s side of the family and listening to all of their stories!

    Haha! Now I am very curious about Canadian Thanksgiving! FYI, my grandma makes the best marshmallow yams! She might have an extra seat this year! 😉

    Marshmallow yams, what? I must be doing Thanksgiving wrong because I never heard of that!

    I know we already talked about HIMYM but Robin makes me love Canada! And you and the fact that an Ai Wei Wei exhibit is in your hood!

    End scene.

    It’s a pity that we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in Spain, because I’d definitely love me some marshmallow yams and turkey! These bites look amazing, though, and I’m surely going to try them 🙂

    Not American or Canadian but I’ll take any excuse to eat excessive amounts of turkey & sweet potato..and pie ;)! Although I think you need to take advantage of your dual nationality and milk both Thanksgivings!!

    Whoa! I never knew that Canadian Thanksgiving was in October. Hm… I have some questions about this. What do you do for Turkey Trots? Is that a thing in Canada? Why no sweet potatoes (although I could leave the marshmallows out)? What about pumpkin pie? Stuffing? No football? What kind of Thanksgiving is this!? And how do you do black Friday shopping?

    Okay I actually only really wonder about the Turkey Trots. The rest of that is a joke. While the food and festivities are fun, it’s the thoughtfulness/idea of the day that matters the most to me. No… stuffing matters to me too, but whatever.
