The Beauty of Celebrating American Thanksgiving in Canada

24 Nov

Wednesday night the grocery store is a ghost town.

Only downside: We couldn’t find any fresh cranberry.

    Happy Thanksgiving. At least the corridors are free to race with the carts. 🙂

    It’s always a little odd to be celebrating an American holiday out of the country…feels a little “off” somehow. Happy Thanksgiving! Hope you have a great holiday!

    Check at Kin’s (Best veggie market)
    They are in most local malls

    Jorge, if you can’t find fresh cranberries, frozen ones will do just as good if you are cooking them.

    What are you having for Thanksgiving?

    I hear you on the cranberries. Be thankful for the grocery stores. They were packed all around here last night.

    My son is a student at UNBC in Prince George, BC. He’s eating T-Day dinner right now, American Style!

    I’m surprised you couldn’t find any cranberries since there are a lot of growers in that area.

    Trader Joe’s was INSANE!

    You should’ve played your cards right and had two Thanksgivings… the Canadian Thanksgiving is celebrated on the United States Columbus Day, and then the United States version, on the Thursday before “Black Friday”. Personally, I begining to favor the Canadian version… it seems to focus on what we should be thankful for, rather than a countdown to when Wal-Mart opens.

    Hi Jorge,

    Since you are doing the vegan thing, there is a nice little grocery store here on the North Shore that is pretty centrally located with a nice selection of veggie and vegan stuff. It is called the Queensdale Market and the owner Norm went veggie years and years ago. He then took his SuperValu chain type grocery store and turned it into a more diverse place to shop. Anywho, if you are looking for stuff that you can’t necessarily find in the big box chain type stores (like the PS in your photo) or if a drive to the Whole Foods in West Van. is just a bit too far, there is a local option available. It’s at 3030 Lonsdale Ave. (about 6 blocks above the highway).

    Hope you are enjoying our lovely North Shore . . . it’s a beauty eh! ;oD

    All the best to you Beth, Pip and Smidge and your little Skunky friend!

    PS: Please try to find some time to bake a loaf of bread again . . . I really enjoy those posts and your mad baking skillz!

      Thanks. Yes I love that store. It’s also my source for when I need a Mexican Coke fix.
