Thanksgiving marks a time of year where many of us come together to feast, be merry, and reflect on what we’re thankful for. Whether you gather around a fancy dining table with your family or a thrift store coffee table with your closest friends, one thing we all do is savor the time we have with the people we care about, and of course, savor the delicious dishes that are so synonymous with this food-filled holiday!
Since 1879, Canucks far and wide have celebrated Thanksgiving on the second Monday of October. Preceding the American Thanksgiving, the Canadian holiday recognizes an earlier harvest due to colder temperatures. Minus the Pilgrims and the Mayflower, Thanksgiving in Canada still celebrates a time for gratitude, family, friends, and above all: feasting!
Life seems to move faster and faster these days and oftentimes there’s just not enough time for us to enjoy a fresh, hearty meal so we settle for something fast, but unhealthy.
Cool weather, hearty foods, and crunchy leaves are just a few of our favorite things about fall. Most visually appealing are the deep reds, orange hues, and vibrant yellows of gorgeous autumn leaves, which just happen to be the exact colors of our Sweet Bell Peppers!
