Happy Thanksgiving, Halifax!

This weekend will mark my third Thanksgiving in Halifax. My first Thanksgiving was actually shortly before I moved here – just under two years ago.

It was a fabulous visit and introduction to the city. It’s really enchanting this time of year. The air is crisp and fresh. People are happy to have a long weekend to go about their business. The market is bustling with delicious produce and other assorted treats and goodies. It’s just great.

This particular weekend is noteworthy for me, not only because it was my first in Halifax, but also because it was my shot at redemption since it followed on the heels of an unfortunate incident to have befallen me the Thanksgiving prior; a turkey fire.

I went with an apple theme and was lucky to find all the ingredients from local vendors at the market, including apple wine! How serendipitous!

  1. Everything looks so amazing! I hope that people recognized your culinary prowess with odes and kowtows. This reminds me that it has been three years since I have celebrated Thanksgiving and had turkey shoved down my gullet. I’m going to eat an entire turkey to myself next year.

    Jan, you possess “the silver tongue of treachery”. It gives you a +5 to pie persuasion and cake cajoling skills.
