Canadian Thanksgiving is just around the corner so enjoy it with simple, fresh and easy recipes on today’s menu!

Eventually (and Thankfully) our menus became became simpler since we all live so far apart and whatever time we get to spend together, we’d rather spend it together with delicious simple food 🙂
