Thanksgiving is one of my favourite holidays, especially in Canada.  The weather is cooling off and the leaves are changing colour and the winter is approaching.  Though I live in Vancouver and our winters are quite mild, it is still an awesome feeling to be with family and to celebrate this time with good food and conversation.  Now I am on Tenerife, the sun is beating down constantly everyday and in the last few days I have got a tan that most of my friends would have to work all summer for.  It really doesn't feel like October at all!

I have become quite good friends with the people who run the Los Amigos Backpacker Hostel, Francesco and Ferdinado, as well as many of the other people here as well.  I spoke with Francesco and we will have our own Thanksgiving dinner on Monday, October 10th (Canadian)!  It means I have to go online to figure out what I will make...I'm sure I can find enough ingredients to make stuffing.  Cranberry sauce, well I'm not sure if I can find that here, even canned stuff.  Maybe we'll have to do without.  We might even have a turkey for the meat eaters.  I haven't cooked a turkey for such a long time that I really hope it turns out well!  Mashed potatoes are easy, as well as other vegetables.  So I'm sure I can put something together.  Pies on the other hand...I'll keep you posted.

Check back on the soon to see how our celebration goes!
