Today's topic: Getting ready for Thanksgiving.
by Ruth Dunley 9/26/2013 4:52:28 PM
Well, since my plan for Thanksgiving is usually to just enjoy the amazing spread my family puts together, I'm not sure what advice I can offer, but here I am!

Today's topic: Thanksgiving. I'm sure a lot of people probably think we're a bit early with this topic, but it seems to me that you guys often emphasize the importance of good planning when it comes to special meals. Do all of you know what you're doing for Thanksgiving and are you already planning it all out?

Bonjour, Michael...thanks for joining our food chat.

And readers...have you got a game plan for Thanksgiving? Tell us about it.
by Ruth Dunley 9/26/2013 5:01:41 PM
I'm attending a family meal, not at my house, so will be preparing a couple of sides to bring along for the gang.

Randy - what's your green bean casserole recipe? That has to be the most Canadian of Thanksgiving dishes!
