The Canadian Thanksgiving weekend is coming up and everyone is planning for the big dinner on Sunday or Monday. It is a harvest celebration, with the date bouncing around October and November until the Canadian Parliament declared in 1957 "A Day of General Thanksgiving... for the bountiful harvest with which Canada has been blessed ... to be observed on the 2nd Monday in October."
So if you are going to celebrate a bountiful harvest, why not make it a local one? Have a look at the menus of the five finalists for last year's TreeHugger (American) 100 Mile Thanksgiving Dinner Contest for some neat ideas- ::100 Mile Thanksgiving Dinner
Also look at Alisa and James' 100 Mile Diet website where which has a big Thanksgiving section at ::100 Mile Thanksgiving Happy Dining!
