I like living in Canada. Besides other good things I won’t be counting today, I can celebrate Thanksgiving twice.

Right, twice! Here in Canada, we celebrate this day in October. Also, being a food blogger, I don’t mind celebrating in once again, at the end of November.

Not that I literally celebrate this day twice, but I love to create a couple of good festive recipes for my USA friends. As you know, I’m a highly generous guy (Does anyone needs more fresh figs? Lavender?) So I’m happily sharing this recipe for Chestnut Cranberry Roasted Brussels Sprouts with all who are celebrating this significant holiday in a few days. If you aren’t among these lucky folks, well you should still make some Chestnut Cranberry Roasted Brussels Sprouts.

It’s an absolutely simple yet delish side dish (Although I had it as the main course). It requires just a few ingredients such as sprouts, shallots, cranberries, chestnuts, and seasonings. Of course, you can buy raw chestnuts and roast them first, but I grabbed the cooked ones, and I am not embarrassed about this. Also, some bacon would be a nice touch, I believe.

But before I wrap my post up, I know you’d like to know how I spent Thanksgiving in October. Well, I cannot leave you without the answer. I’m generous and nice, remember?

It was a really lovely long weekend (Extended for me since I took a few extra days off), and I spent it in Halifax, with Andrey. The weather that weekend (See the proof – pictures attached) was really nice; however, on a Thanksgiving day Nova Scotia was affected by notorious hurricane Matthew, and we had quite a storm. That was okay, though – Thanksgiving is a family holiday, and we spend it at home.

Unfortunately, I didn’t make these Chestnut Cranberry Roasted Brussels Sprouts that day. It would have been a nice addition to a cozy day at home.

But you, my friends, don’t hesitate and include this dish in your Thanksgiving menu. You family would appreciate this.

    You made Chestnut Cranberry Roasted Brussels Sprouts??? Wow! Count me in, Ben. Roasted veggies are one of my favorite dishes, but I’ve never seen anything like this. It’s so pretty festive. What a fun way to celebrate Thanksgiving. You look awesome, Ben and so are these photos. Perfectly captured. No wonder why you love being a Canadian. :)

    Ahhh, Hali!!!! The picture looking out on to the harbour with the cruise ship made me get all misty eyed, I used to live around the corner!!! It’s great being Canadian, and celebrating thanksgiving twice. Sadly, over in the UK the Brits haven’t really caught on to this yet so are amazed when I suggest eating turkey and pumpkin pie. Love the look of the dish Ben, great pictures as always!

    Man, those photos of Halifax are gorgeous! I really need to get up to that part of the world on vacation sometime. Also, your comment about reasons why you love being a Canadian made me think…what else is on that list? I’m gonna to guess: moose, curling, Mounties and eh. Did I get close? :-) Haha! Seriously, though, I love this Brussels sprouts dish, Ben. The chestnuts and cranberries in there are perfect (perfect!!) for this time of the year. I don’t think I’ve ever made anything with chestnuts, so I really need to try that soon. Thanks for the idea, and happy 2nd Thanksgiving, my friend!
