Canadian Thanksgiving

Any Canadians out there celebrating Thanksgiving next weekend? I usually do a thread and then there's tumbleweed as most people think of the US holiday later in November.
I'm doing a big feast, turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes (American style although probably without marshmallows) and pumpkin pie. Looking for some other sides and some regular potato dishes and salads.
Any inspiration welcome!

Firstly Happy Thanksgiving! Have you considered doing poutine, simple and tasty. Maple glaze on the turkey I have been told by all the meat eaters in my world, is delicious.
Maple based fudge is super easy and great after dinner with coffee.

Dd1 is coming home for the weekend 😊 we’ll be doing turkey and all the trimmings and she has also asked for egg custard along with the pumpkin pie 😊
We are planning to make the Christmas cake on Saturday as she’s my baking progeny...

We are celebrating! Pumpkin soup for starters and then turkey with all the trimmings. Pumpkin pie for dessert of course! Can’t wait!

I'll be doing a teeny version of it as we're doing a bit of DIY this weekend, so no-one coming for dinner. I will also make the xmas cake.

Happy thanksgiving!
