Thanksgiving Feasting

Today was Thanksgiving in Canada, so I decided to celebrate since I have a little bit of Canadian ancestry.

I wrote a post, Almost Canadian?, that details my Jenks ancestors that lived in Canada. I also have a Chapman ancestor that died in Nova Scotia and I plan on writing about him someday.

I had planned on taking the day off, but had an important meeting at work today.

However, I still did some Thanksgiving feasting.

Pumpking Yoghurt, Yogurt, Noosa Yoghurt, Thanksgiving YoghurtI started off the day with some Pumpkin yoghurt for breakfast.

I have recently been trying different yoghurts/yogurts as my regular yogurt now has limited flavor choices. See: Pumpkin Spice Yogurt

Pumpking Yoghurt, Yogurt, Noosa Yoghurt, Thanksgiving YoghurtI have really enjoyed the Noosa Yoghurt that I have tried, so was looking forward to trying the Pumpkin flavor.

The yoghurt was really good and started my day with a nice fall/Thanksgiving themed breakfast.

Red Tractor Cafe, Dublin, California, Open Faced Turkey Sandwich, Comfort FoodI had been looking forward to my lunch today for several days. I had decided that I would have my Thanksgiving lunch at the Red Tractor Cafe in Dublin.

The Red Tractor Cafe serves nice farm comfort food and it really brings back memories.

Orangeade, Red Tractor Cafe, Table Marker, Farm Themed RestaurantThe Red Tractor Cafe has a farm theme, even down to the table markers and the canning jars used for drinks.

My table marker said COW and my jar was filled with delicious orangeade.

Open Faced Turkey Sandwich, Red Tractor Cafe, Secret Menu, Potatoes and GravyWhen I arrived at the order station I was looking at the menu board and couldn’t find what I had been looking forward to. I asked the manager why the Open Faced Turkey Sandwich was not on the menu. He said that it was on their second menu which is not displayed. I was not disappointed šŸ™‚

In the picture above is my Thanksgiving lunch. Does it look like a Thanksgiving meal?

The mashed potatoes and cranberry were a nice complement to the Open Faced Turkey Sandwich.

I really enjoyed my Thanksgiving meal and took the time to give thanks for my many blessings and also think about my Canadian friends who were also celebrating Thanksgiving.

Now I am looking forward to our Thanksgiving, it is only 45 days away šŸ™‚

  1. I feel really dumb – I didn’t know you celebrated Thanksgiving in Canada. I didn’t know that you can get pumpkin yoghurt either – thanks for the lessons!

    Glad you got your fill of Thanksgiving, it looked like something Mr B would be all over in a heartbeat šŸ˜€

    I’ve never seen that yogurt in my market, but I usually love pumpkin stuff as long as it’s not too sweet..
