BAKING FOR CANADIAN THANKSGIVING
Sheaf of Wheat Bread
NOTE: I'll be away from my computer until Sunday the 14th!
This is a quick one-- I'm stealing time from my cooking (we're having our family meal today at my son's house) to blog! The photo above is a bread I usually make but did not get around to this year! I'm slipping!
The photo below is of my two vegan pumpkin pies and an apple pie made with some freshly-picked tart apples that a friend gave me. I made them last night for today's dinner.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL MY CANADIAN FRIENDS! I'll post more pictures tommorrow!

The dinner, minus the Peruvian-style rice and dessert-- clockwise from top left: Salpicon, a lemony cabbage salad with Breast of Tofu; the causa (see below); the "turkey" (see below); the Port Gravy; and the Peruvian red onion and chili relish in the center.

Good friend and taster Jerry ready to go to work on the dinner!
The Dessert: Chocolate-Hazelnut Praline Lava Cakes!
