People from outside of Canada might not be aware of it, but this weekend is our Thanksgiving holiday, so there will be a lot of food consumed. Yesterday, Joan and I attended the annual “Harvest Dinner” put on by the McBride Library as a fund raiser. There was a lot of tasty food to be consumed and that is where I took the photo you see.
I feel I must make one thing clear--this was not my plate. I admit to sometimes falling into the category of “gluttony”, but although I stuffed myself last night, I didn’t have this much stuff on my plate. I spotted this plate, belonging to a young male, abandoned on the table beside us, when he left his seat to pick up some dessert. He had done such a masterful job of stacking the food on the limited space of the plate that I couldn’t help but take a photo.
I am happy to report that after the meal his plate was empty. He didn’t waste anything.
Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians and to you whenever a similar holiday occurs.
