Operation Turkey Trot

There’s frost in the morning, my new snowboard is all ready to go, and the red cups are back at Starbucks. It can only mean one thing. Winter is coming and the holidays will be upon us soon! Now, being Canadian, I’ve already had my Thanksgiving holiday dinner with my family a couple weeks ago, but this year I get to celebrate twice! I’m joining Jimmy Beans Wool in celebrating the US Thanksgiving holidays with a little surprise… I believe the first rule of Turkey Trot is that we do not talk about Turkey Trot… however, you’ll know soon enough. It’s all launching November 16, so keep your eye on Jimmy Beans Wool.

In the meantime, here’s a little hint…

One of my favourite parts of the holidays is that I get to cook for my friends and family… the other thing is that I get to consume guilt-free quantities of bread stuffing. Every year I make this bread stuffing with sausage and wild mushrooms to go alongside the turkey that my mom typically cooks for our family. This year, my mom and dad were traveling in Taiwan where my dad was having a solo art exhibition, so it was just Dan and I and my brothers and their sig figs for Thanksgiving dinner. Since we didn’t have any turkey, I made the bread stuffing into more of an entree by adding cheese curds and gravy to it… ta da… sausage and wild mushroom stuffing poutine!

Hope you guys enjoy the surprise at Jimmy Beans. You can also check out other hints from Lorna’s Laces, Dream in Color, Laura Nelkin and more!
