    Thanks for posting @Fred19Flintstone.  Hopefully get some good ideas to flip for November.  
    Edit:  Happy Thanksgiving to those members in the GWN.  Enjoy.

    @Canugghead - You are obviously in charge of the centerpieces for quite a gathering.  Gonna be eating well.

    What does the GWN say thanks for (same as US?) and why is it on a different date?

    Google says it's to celebrate the harvest season; being further north our growing season is shorter and harvest comes earlier.

    Thanks. It's just our family, so swmbo and I are more or less in charge of everything. Even with high vaccination rate and low case count we're still encouraged to keep gatherings small, although sports venues have just returned to full capacity.

    Haha, CR Northern Harvest was all the rage in 2016. TBH as a very casual drinker I probably can’t tell the difference between a $50 and a $500 bottle  :)

    @Canugghead - I cut my teeth on Canadian Club, growing up three miles south of the Quebec/NY line.  And I am quite sure that a $50 bottle would taste top-shelf to me.  
    Enjoy the holiday, cook and gathering.  The best with family.

    @Canugghead per usual, you have quite the spread on the cards!

    A very happy Canadian Thanksgiving to those  north of us. Wishing you all good eats, good health, and a lovely time with family/friends.

    Very nice, hope some plated pics are to follow.
    And either of the "wrapped" pics could go in the Art thread.  😊

    @paqman - you win the thread.  Anyone who runs with the chicken ballotine should become a surgeon  =).  Looking great!

    @paqman - I completely understand the rapid loss of surgical skills. Below is a great tutorial for anyone wanting to jump in.  But the first several runs at it take a whole lot of time.  The pay-off is a Wow factor however.

    I can’t remember who it was the originally posted this but whoever it was, thank you!  Definitely worth trying.  My first one was NOT a beauty but it was tasty.  With more practice, they are getting nicer and nicer.  Definitely a wow factor!

    Topped with maple sugar.  This is a pic of the end piece.

    @lousubcap I don’t have steady hands, no way I could have been a surgeon 😳

    It has been at least a year since i’ve made a chicken ballotine and it took me almost 45 minutes to prep.  When it was on the regular rotation, I could prep it in less than 10 minutes.
    Beautiful, you got this thing down pat Pepinman. The only way to top that is weaving the bacon strips  ;) j/k

    So much awesome. I love the idea of different sized rolls, and lighter vs. darker crusts for folks to choose per their liking. 

    But, this last pic just steals the show IMO.

    Thanks, call them accidental success…
    The buns near the two sides of the oven got darker due to congestion and flames from bottom sides; roulade discs got wavy because straight line wouldn’t fit the plate  :)
