This was one of those rare Thanksgivings with picture perfect, summer-like weather. If I could bottle up any type of weather and have it year round it would have been this weekend’s: 25-26C, low humidity, blue skies, and gorgeous Fall colours. I could do 365 days of this, thankyouverymuch.

The only thing that could have made this weekend any better would be having my side of the family there too!

Let’s see, there were tees, tank tops, sandals, and Crocs. Pale skin became tickled pink again.

There were morning runs without watches or music. Wake ups to the sunrise cats and not the alarm.

No need for jackets and warm PJs unlike our visit two weekends ago.

Out came the dock and boat lift, although it felt like we should have been putting it in.

I made another Pumpkin Brownie Pie followed by a much needed weekend off from cooking and baking (but of course, not from eating!).

2-day computer cleanse. With only one brief relapse! Darn you, Pinterest.

I’m refreshed, but not quite ready to say goodbye…to this weekend…the weather…or my sanity.

Lastly, I hope you like horse teeth.

You will laugh…you may cry.

I’m going to go brush my teeth now.

Happy Thanksgiving!

We are just about to have our dinner here in B.C., and I could not be more excited for stuffing!

Your weather was much nicer than ours- 10 C and cloudy! Oh well!

Brenna :)

Oh the pics are fabulous!

Looks like you had an awesome holiday with the family. And that Pumpkin Brownie Pie…I really really want that!

And I’m happy for you that you had a weekend off from cooking, baking, photographing it all, recipe trials, and kitchen time. We all need that. I just got done with a 4 hour cook + photograph session so can relate.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I’m making that pumpkin brownie for US Thanksgiving this year. I’ve been eyeing it since you did it LAST fall.

Happy thanksgiving! A beautiful weekend indeed. I took full advantage of it, and yes the weather should be like this all year long, but then, this wouldn’t be Canada would it? ;)

Jacqueline October 10, 2011

What would it take for you to just make me the pie and send it to my house?

tweal October 10, 2011

What a lovely weekend it was. I could live with this weather all the time too. And your pumpkin brownie pie sounds so good, I’m sure I could eat it every day. I will have to try making it soon.

Ha , that’s so funny! We just drove by some of those very same spots you did today. We took the family to Springridge farm, right along the escarpment–totally beautiful weekend! The pictures of my kids holding pumpkins in shorts and tank tops looks so strange!
Looks like you took full advantage of the weather…

Angela (Oh She Glows) October 11, 2011

So many people were out driving and taking pics! It was pretty fun :)

JenATX October 10, 2011

so funny that you long for summer weather for Thanksgiving and all I want is crisp, fall weather on Thanksgiving (down here in Texas). Cooler weather makes pie more appealing :)

The horse teeth are hysterical : )
Made your lentil loaf for dinner last night and loved it. It tastes just like stuffing! And who doesn’t just want to eat stuffing and mashed potatoes for dinner? Thanks for a great recipe. It will get a repeat make at Christmas.

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) October 11, 2011

I’m happy to hear that! Maybe I could make a stuffing recipe based on that loaf?

Happy Thanksgiving! I made my first Green Monster today (having just discovered your site less then a week ago,) thanks for giving it a name that will make my 2.5 yr old drink it…. Genius! I added beet greens to the virgin recipe. My husband had good energy for his run! Looking forward to the creamy avo pasta tomorrow. Thanks again! Cheers!

Angela (Oh She Glows) October 11, 2011

Hey Shannon, I’m happy you like the green monster! Enjoy the pasta :)

Christine October 11, 2011

Happy Thanksgiving! I made your ultimate lentil walnut loaf to take to our family dinner and had a wonderful vegan Thanksgiving meal, thanks to your recipe! Next up… I’m going to make the pumpkin brownie, just because. I’m glad you had a wonderful weekend.

What a gorgeous Thanksgiving!! Wasn’t it the best weather this year? We had amazing sunshine and warmth on Sunday when we had our big family meal and it almost seemed too good to be true!! I could live like that for 365 as well…sigh…now its just down hill from here ;)

It sounds like you had a great Thanksgiving! It’s so nice just to take a break from everything and just enjoy time with the family. :)

Your shots of the countryside are gorgeous. I went on a hike up the escarpment at Mount Nemo this weekend and it was beautiful. It’s too bad the colours never last that long!

Leanne @ Healthful Pursuit October 11, 2011

Sounds (and looks) like you guys had a great weekend. It was gorgeous here in Alberta too, but definitely not as warm!
