Can you believe it’s October already? If it weren’t for the fact that (Canadian) Thanksgiving is quickly approaching, I would probably still be in denial! It’s been unseasonably cold and rainy over the past week, and any glee I felt at being able to wear my fall clothes was quickly eclipsed the minute I stepped out the door to be buffeted by wind and rain. Despite the cooler temperatures (and aside from the rain), fall is one of my favourite seasons; jackets, gloves and scarves come out, and cooking and baking activities turn toward roasts, pies, soups and all sorts of comfort food. Include the festivities of the upcoming months, and I find this to be a wonderful time of year.
I’ve just finalized this year’s menu, but thought I’d share the meal we had last year. Here’s our menu, and links to the recipes:
Mixed Greens with Prosciutto-Wrapped Pear and Belgian Endive
I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
