Link Ups: Thanksgiving Treats

Canadian Thanksgiving

Get ready Canada! We’re only days away from the very first party of the season, and it’s time to start thinking about all the delicious treats we’re going to be eating! Grocery stores have already stocked up on eggnog - do people really drink it this early in the year? - and morning talk shows are sharing their best stuffing recipes.

If you’ve ever tried to prepare an entire Thanksgiving dinner, you know it’s probably one of the hardest jobs in the universe, and all you really get to show for it is a lot of turkey soup and cranberry sauce sandwiches to eat for the rest of the month. If you’re cooking this year, why not treat yourself and have the kids whip up a delicious and simple dessert, so you can put your feet up for a few minutes between stuffing the bird and peeling potatoes?
