A Canadian Foodie

BRILLIANT! BRAVO! To see this array of Canadian Thanksgiving food from our Canadian writers displayed with such visual splendor has me overwhelmed this morning. Absolutely stunning and oh oh OH CANADA!
I am so upset that I did not get my links in! I wanted to know how to do the 610 photo exactly – and with dad in the hospital and so much going on that way, did research how – but wasn’t successful – didn’t finish getting that research done. Tried, and it wasn’t working. Darn! I had my homemade cranberry sauce that is so easy – the dressing – maybe that is what you will showcase tomorrow… and how to make a great gravy… all so traditional. I am really enjoying the out of the box ideas above as much as the traditional ones.


That’s too bad Valerie. Really, any piece of photo editing software should let you crop down to your specified dimensions: photoshop, photoshop elements, lightroom. If you don’t have any photo editing software you can use picmokey on-line. It’s free. Here’s a quick, two minute tutorial on how to crop in picmonkey: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JW2vN6K6sQI
