So much to be Thankful for!

This past weekend was Thanksgiving here in Nova Scotia, and were fortunate enough to be able to host 35 (including us) of the McDonahs, representing four generations, for Dinner!  We closed out the B&B for the night so that we could get everything ready.  It was a pretty special sight to see that many of us sitting at one table.  We went around the table, one-by-one, revealing what we were thankful for.  Although the sentiments varied, I know we were all thankful to be part of such a large, fun & loving family!

"Turporken" - a de-boned turkey, stuffed with a pork roast, stuffed with a de-boned chicken which has been stuffed!  This one turporken would serve 25 people. We also barbecued an 8lb pork roast.
