Weekend Recap - Lots of food

What a beautiful fall weekend!  The temperatures were seasonal, the sun was out, not a cloud in the sky.  I love summer, but I appreciate the crisp weather and of course the beautiful colours.

I need to learn more about this camera, this was my attempt at learning how to backlight, not sure I figured it out.
On Saturday morning we met some friends at High Park and attempted some family photos.  We played on the playground and then went through the zoo.

E was going with the "lean against the tree" pose, which made me laugh, which made for a number of bad photos. This one is pretty good. 

At the zoo, feeding the llamas.

E wanted to touch the chicken which involved me holding it.  I am clearly unsure about this but it all worked out fine.  It was surprising docile and very soft.
Afterwards, we went to La Cubana, a cute little Cuban place on Roncesvalles.  They were still serving brunch, so we all ordered the Cuban Breakfast and E had the French toast with bananas.  Everything was very tasty, and great for families.  I can't wait to go back to try their dinner menu, and fresh doughnuts for dessert!


Mango juice in an Incredibles cup.

On Sunday, I made our Thanksgiving Dinner.  I love turkey dinner, it is one of my favourite meals.  Since it was just the three of us, I tried keeping it fairly simple.  I made regular turkey, stuffing, mash potatoes (fully loaded, and inspired by this recipe), carrots, brussel sprouts, cranberry sauce and gravy.  For dessert, we had a homemade pumpkin pie, and an apple pie from a farmer's market.  All very yummy!

I forgot to take a picture of the turkey before it was carved.
Yummy mashed potatoes.

Colourful and tasty!
Thankful for these guys!
Always pick both kinds of pie when given the chance.
