Thanksgiving weekend!
I wonder if there is really a difference between
our thanksgiving and American's so I googled a bit.
In Canada Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday in October.
Unlike the American tradition of remembering Pilgrims and settling in the New World,
Canadians give thanks for a successful harvest.
The harvest season falls earlier in Canada compared to the United States
due to the simple fact that Canada is further north.
"Ha, I learnt something new. We celebrate thanksgiving
much earlier than US doggies coz of this simple fact!"
After our evening walky on Sunday I decided to take a boooty nap!
"I have to look fabulous at the pawty! I know my mom will
take lots of pictures!"
"Let hooomans work for the fiesta! Here's our chef and mom will be a
photographer and .. I would say a clean up girl!" "Whoa, this turkey looks HUGE!" ZZZZZZZZ..... My mom LOVES stuffing. :) This year we made it with lots of lots of herbs and wild rice. We were thinking to prepare 4 packs of stuffing to make my mom happy but 2 packs were actually enough...even for my mom, Stuffing Lover! Turkey is ready!
"See you birdy in a few hours!"
"I better check and see how our chef is doing!"
"Cranberry sauce with lemon zest sounds good!
This pretty colour increases our appetite!!"
sniff.. sniff.... sniff......
"Ohhhhh my favorite cauliflower & broccoli with
cheese sauce. (Cheddar and Parmesan.) YUM"
I don't post picutres but we prepared more veggie dishes.
"MY stuffing!!! Yay!" :)
"Looks like our turkey is ready!" Tada!
"The skin looks nice & crispy and smells absolutely pawsome!"
"Are you gonna give me a sample? dad?"
"Dinner time!!!
Let me try more turkey? I'll be here forever!"
Yes, my pawrents made me try yummy turkey dinner.
And hey, I had my own stuffing!
Everything my pawrents made was so yummy...
Guess what?
We didn't have room for dessert.

Stanley said...

What do you mean, "no room for dessert?" That's unhealthy, Momo. Make sure you eat double desserts today!

Looks like a very tasty and relaxing Thanksgiving. I need to hire your dad to be my personal Gooberstanian chef!

Goober love,

Simba and Jazzi said...

That food looks yummy. But your Daddy looks lonely at the table all by himself, maybe I should join him?

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Hey Momo...oops, first I forgot the o on ur name and wrote Hey, Mom! Sorry, Girl!!
Thanksgiving in October...If ya think of it it seems like everything even in Virginia woulda been harvested by October. Wonder why we have to wait till almost Christmas to have our Thanksgiving? Do you think the American Pilgrims were thinking ahead to consumerism and holiday season sales??? Your date makes SO much more sense! Just lookin at ur pics made Scruffy drool so much over the keyboard, that I sent him for a towel

Happy Day of Giving Thanks!!


Angel MoMo and Charlotte said...

Mieow! Thanks for calling in again. So happy to have another Momo to call my friend. I have also put in a link to your site in mine. Yes, turkey-eating-MoMo-convention is a great idea, I'm all for it. Your place or mine? Must thank Charlie for the great suggestion. She is just after your turkey.


Kien said...

Ok.. i can't stand it.. can u please ask ur daddy to come over and stay with us?.. i think we need a chef here..


PerfectTosca said...

Wow Momo your food looks great. They are lucky I am not there to help celebrate. That turkey left alone all by itself would have been history with me and my cats.

Sparky said...

Happy Thanksgiving Momo! Now, I can't wait for our Thanksgiving - - it will be mine and Patches first Thanksgiving ever, and I'm sure that my mama will give us a tiny taste of yummy turket bird.
