Pea Soup?

Canadians have had Thanksgiving in October, but our Americans friends are giving thanks for their good fortune and blessings this week, on November 23.

I had a thought about Thanksgiving. Why not have pea soup instead of turkey? It’s all around us with this fog as thick as pea soup.

November weather tests us hard

Makes us eat more, donning lard

On the thighs and round our ribs,

We wish the weight scale told us fibs,

Now we need to eat some more,

Friends and family at the door,Β 

Time for all to meet and greet,

Turkey dinner can’t be beat,

But with fog like thick pea soup,

Why not feed it to the group?

Not enough, I hear you say,

We want roastΒ  turkey anyway.

I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving. I know we are all thankful for what we have. It’s not just about the food, but about giving and sharing, and loving our treasured family and friends everywhere.

    I love your poem. Yes it is pea soup day today but better than the pouring rain coming home from Victoria yesterday.
    Happy Thanksgiving to all our American friends.

    Pea soup sounds good – but turkey much better! Turkey makes the fog go away – nothing but sunshine after…. we wish that this happens! Happy Thanksgiving to all!

      Thank you. Very drippy day, but I’m wishing right now that we were having turkey tomorrow. Not being American, we’ve already had ours last month and will have to wait for Christmas for the next turkey dinner. But you enjoy!!!

        This reminds me. I drove from Michigan up through Toronto once on your Thanksgiving weekend. I didn’t know at the time it was a holiday weekend. I was amazed at how bad the traffic was, not realizing we have picked the worst weekend timing ever to head to Canada for business, lol

    We are so very blessed. Happy Thanksgiving to all of my family and dear friends. I am looking forward to a delightful dinner of roast turkey and all the trimmings we enjoy so very much. Your poem is very thoughtful Anneli. At this moment we have skipped the fog but the downpour is certainly cleansing the air.

      We’ve had fog and rain and wind, alternating for over a week. Today we have glimpses of blue sky and it’s amazing how energizing that can be. More wind and rain on its way tonight. Wish I could join you for the turkey dinner and the festivities. Have fun.
