Welcome to another Hearth and Soul Blog Hop, the hop for recipes using healthy ingredients, family and comfort food recipes, articles about healthy living, real/slow/local/sustainable food, foraging, herbal remedies, organics and gardening.

As a Brit with Canadian roots, my family and I celebrate Thanksgiving in October, but with everyone in the US is getting ready for one of the year’s biggest celebrations I’ve decided to feature some of the Ideas for Thanksgiving that were shared in last week’s hop.

  1. Hi April,
    What great ideas for a Thanksgiving Feast, everything looks so good. I am bringing a couple more to add to the table, my Fall Garden Hash with root veggies from my garden and a family favorite Cranberry Relish Sweet and Spicy. Hope you have a great week and thanks for the awesome party!

  4. Nice TG round-up! I’m not prepared, as usual. I like to tell myself I work well under pressure. Ha!

    Thank you for the party!

  5. Hi April,

    Great picks this week! I love Thanksgiving 🙂


  6. Thanks for the Thanksgiving ideas. I haven’t finalized my menu yet, I hope you are celebrating in Canada with your son. Have a great week.

    • Hi Diane! I’m so glad you like them. We are home from Canada now, but our son is back with us so it’s lovely. I don’t know why but Thanksgiving in Canada is in October – we try to always celebrate it here in the UK as well although very few others do. Having said that, I love Thanksgiving and am always tempted to celebrate again on US Thanksgiving as well 🙂 x

  7. April, thank you so much for featuring my little Thankful Hearts Gingerbread Cookies. They were so much fun to make! I’ll be thinking of you on Nov. 28th, so if you decide to celebrate, we can celebrate together! 🙂

    Love, Joy
