The THANKSgiving Show

Episode Notes

A note from Stephanie...

I love the fall - and I love the entire Thanksgiving to Christmas season! It means so much to me to be able to spend time with family and friends around a table...and I also make sure to take the time to remember that not everyone is so lucky.

This episode is dedicated to all of the hardworking volunteers at the food banks and to the people who have to lean on them for support.

Happy THANKSgiving!

For this episode's recipe...we thought it was appropriate to give you a few (or many) of our favourite last-minute additions to your Thanksgiving weekend meal plan (or for anytime on the weekend...or for leftovers?)

Share the recipes with others - or even better - share your completed recipes and dine with anyone you can this weekend!

Why not surprise your guests and start things off with...

Moroccan Pumpkin Soup

Our two favourite side dishes - just add the turkey!

Vegetarian Shepherd's Pie

Bean & Tomato Salad

To use up those turkey leftovers (because we all have them...)

Stephanie's Easy Turkey Chili

Turkey Croquettes

...and to get the PUMPKIN in without the usual PIE!

Pumpkin Roulade with Ginger Cream

OH YES! Don't forget the morning!

Pumpkin-Praline Muffins

...and CLICK HERE some other ideas to help you get your Thanksgiving up and running in a flash!



Here are a few quick recipes to use up some leftovers for ANY time...keep them on-hand so you can cut down on your food waste this season!

Butternut Squash Soup

Use the same method with carrots, another squash, parsnips or potatoes - just change up the herbs in the bouquet!

Linguine With Quick Clam Sauce

Use this as a base recipe and switch up the tomatoes with spinach or change the clams to leftover cooked shrimp or other seafood.

Quick Pickled Vegetables

These veggies will be your new go-to on sandwiches and as a side condiment or snack. Use proper canning methods to store them for the rest of the season.

Bacon & Apple Flatbread

Use the same method with carrots, another squash, parsnips or potatoes - just change up the herbs in the bouquet!

Pasta Primavera

There are so many veggies that you can use in this basic recipe, it can be your weeknight favourite!

The St. Charles College Food Drive is an annual event organized by the St. Charles College Student Council. Our feeder schools- St. John, Pius XII, St. David, Holy Trinity and St. Paul’s partner with us to help. With local radio stations as partners as well, it is truly a community event. The food drive has a long and proud history of making a difference in our city. It began in 1984, with Jim Szilva as a student at S.C.C.  The original goal was 25 000 cans.  It has grown each year.  The goal each year is 60 000 cans, however each year we surpass that total.

...and if you are in Sudbury on November 2nd...the Art of Dessert is the event of the season!

Keep this checklist handy for all of the items that your food bank is looking for this season...
