A traditional Canadian Thanksgiving supper is a roast turkey with a savory breadcrumb stuffing (usually a family recipe), mashed potatoes, gravy, various fall vegetables (our family likes brussell sprouts, but squash or turnips, or green beans are other choices). A necessary condiment is cranberry sauce made from fresh berries (not the canned type!)
Of course dessert must include Pumpkin Pie and perhaps an apple or blueberry pie as well, for those who may not be quite as fond of pumpkin. Years ago my family grew a bit weary of the same old pumpkin pie so we tried variations like pumpkin chiffon, or more recently pumpkin cheesecake! But to die-hard traditionalists, there is nothing like good old, plain pumpkin! It's just not Thanksgiving without it!
So, as I started off saying, I was wondering how to tie Thanksgiving and Richard Armitage together when what to my wondering eyes did appear? -- but a fabulous (and timely) post by TeetotallyNot at her blog: Y I, Mum? She has made the most gorgeous Thanksgiving picture with none other than Richard right in the middle of it!
Well, much as I would like to snaffle it and put it up here, she did inspire me to make my own (nowhere near as good as hers of course) -- with the help of Face in Hole.com, a website I have become quite fond of lately!
So here's a toast to you, my loyal readers! I am very thankful for those friends I have made online ever since I took to the web to discover something about this mysterious actor person I was so curious about. But I have since discovered so much more. People from all over the world who share the same interests, who are kind, generous and inspirational to each other, and have fabulous discussions, many creative talents and a wonderful sense of humour.
For all of you -- I am thankful!
