Thanksgiving Turkey


It is hard to believe but it is already that time of year again…. temperatures are crisp, leaves are changing colour, kids are back at school and we’re starting to plan for our Thanksgiving feast with friends and family!

Thanks to everyone who has pre-ordered their Snyder’s Heritage Farm Thanksgiving turkeys. Delivery/pick-up will start on Wed Oct 2nd!

Why do we love Snyder Farms turkeys?

First off – they taste great! The feedback we had in the past few years has been fantastic so it is a no-brainer that Snyder’s is our choice again this year. Also Snyder’s turkeys are raised free-run, are drug-free and fed GMO-free feed that is grown and made by the Snyder’s. The picture above is our Thanksgiving turkey from last year. It was delicious. Can’t wait for this years!

The Best BBQ Sauce Recipe

Our sister-in-law, Johanne, gave us this BBQ sauce recipe over 20 years ago – and it is still the only BBQ sauce we use today! It’s so handy and easy to make as it doesn’t have any weird ingredients so we usually have everything in our fridge/pantry when we want to make it.

The Best BBQ Sauce Recipe

3 tbsp             ketchup

1 tbsp             soy sauce

1.5 tbsp          maple syrup – the real kind (sweet)

1 tbsp             fresh lemon juice (acidic)

1 tsp                finely chopped garlic (savory)

1 tsp                hot sauce (heat)

To make this recipe to your own liking all you have to do is adjust the sweet, acidic, savory or heat as you like by increasing or decreasing the amounts of those basic ingredients.

This makes about ½ a cup of sauce so you can double or triple the recipe as you need. It also keeps well in the fridge for about a week so easy to make ahead.

So simple – so good!
