Thanksgiving Bren Style

We’ve never ‘done’ thanksgiving in the UK so, it was new to me to celebrate it here. Thanksgiving is this Monday in Canada. Neither of us likes Turkey and I hate cooking too. Asked my teen what she wants for Thanksgiving meal and she said: “Can we have Hot chicken sandwiches, and cheesecake for desert?


I can make a roast turkey dinner with all the trimmings (at a push, which would take me many hours) but when neither of us likes it, why go to the trouble. Just because it’s tradition doesn’t mean it’s law so…
Hot chicken sandwiches and cheesecake it is!~!  I’m a happy bunny…:)

  1. Thanksgiving is about what’s important to *you*, so give thanks for whatever you want! As for me, I’d give plenty of thanks for that sandwich; it looks delicious! Happy Day 🙂 Here’s mine: New Deal

  2. i dont know how i missed this…my apologies bren….i think you can have whatever you want…we had steak one year…which seems anti tradition but we all kinda looked at each other and said we didnt want turkey….

  3. It’s all about being thankful and sharing what you have and that sandwich looks good enough to grab right out of your photo. 🙂

  4. Sounds yummy to me. Personally I enjoy hot roastbeef sandwiches and mash pototoes with gravy… Have a delicious Monday

  5. Sounds like a plan to me, but really I don’t know anyone else who doesn’t like turkey. When I make it here though I just make a turkey breast, as I am not into cleaning the carcass. And I prefer the white meat anyway. Good though u are not bound by Canadian tradition though.

  6. Sounds good to me!!
    Of course living in Canada you could have Pea-Meal Bacon eh?
    And don’t forget those yummy little butter tarts!!
    Loved your 55 DD2
    Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Holiday Week-End

  7. Yeah make your own tradition, who says you have to eat turkey, eat what you like I say or just skip the whole friggin day.

  8. Happy Thanksgiving! Is it supposed to be a harvest celebration there too? Anyway, under your sandwiches and/or cake, consider paper plates. They make for a day of rest or walks, enjoying each other’s company.
