Canadian Thanksgiving has come and gone, but luckily we Canadians live in America so we still have American Thanksgiving to look forward to.  This recipe for Pomegranate-Blueberry Glazed Roast Turkey is my go-to for any meal intended to feed the masses. We hosted Canadian Thanksgiving a few weeks back where this dish was the main attraction. Next week, we will be cooking another bird for friends who remain in the city for American Thanksgiving, where again this recipe will take center stage. This non-traditional approach to prepping a turkey leaves you with a moist, succulent and flavorful meat that is always a hit.

Friendsgiving: Our First American Thanksgiving

We have enjoyed two Thanksgivings this year (it is okay to be jealous. It meant two scrumptious roast dinners for us).  In October, my mom was in the city and I whipped up a pared down version of Canadian Thanksgiving in our pint sized apartment oven. Even with a little less grandeur than the  Thanksgiving meals I have prepared in the past, it was so nice to have at least one of our loved ones with us.

For American Thanksgiving we had my step mom, Jenni, in town , as well as an abundance of amazing, new friends.  We were so Thankful to have Jenni here to stay with us.  We spent the week before thanksgiving with her exploring the city and taking in as many Christmas and Thanksgiving related activities we could.  I have yet to find another city that does the holidays quite as spectacularly as New York.  So, here is a look into our first American Thanksgiving and the incredible people who made it the wonderful time it was.

(My apologies in advance because the photos are terrible.  I was too busy having fun to carefully capture many of the moments but hopefully these will suffice to give you a glimpse into our festivities.)  Continue reading “Friendsgiving: Our First American Thanksgiving”
