Thanksgiving Monday

Happy Thanksgiving to all of our Canadian readers. We hope you're enjoying your long weekend! Today, we're going back up to Ruth's dad's house and we're going to stay there with him for a couple of days.

Yesterday, we had my family visit for Sunday brunch at our daughter Lindsey's house. Grandson Cameron came with me to pick up our son Alex who had taken the bus out to this end of the city.

And then Alex, Cameron, and I stopped in to say hi to a long time friend of mine who lived near where we were picking up Alex. This is one of the guys I'll be seeing next weekend for my annual guy's weekend away.

Then, it was back to Lindsey's where my two sisters and my Mom were waiting.

Lindsey made eggs benedict for everyone.

Our son Alex playing with his niece Sadie, and nephew Cameron.

Brunch is ready.
Eggs Benedict with bacon wrapped asparagus and pumpkin muffins and fresh squeezed orange juice!

Our daughter Lindsey, my sisters Elaine and Alison, and my Mom!

We went over to the park for a while with the kids. A nice afternoon, but you can tell that fall is in the air.

And how about those Blue Jays!? I watched the game last night. First time I've watched a full baseball game from start to finish in a long time. Looking forward to seeing the Jays in the ALCS starting this coming Friday.

And this morning? We woke up to the first frost of the year...

    1. She blanched all the poached eggs the day before so it made the cooking time shorter the day of the brunch. It was delicious, she did a fantastic job on them.

      Hope you both had a great Thanksgiving as well.

    1. We loved our time in Budapest but 5 days still wasn't enough. One day we will make our way back there and see more of the city and of the country.

    1. She is a trained chef so anything thing she makes is delicious. I am not sure I would want to have eggs benedict anywhere else now, they wouldn't be nearly as good.
