Breaking with Tradition

It is a beautiful Thanksgiving day in Nuremberg.  To keep up with Canadian tradition we got up early to start on the Thanksgiving dinner in particular our usual double baked butternut squash.  We have been making this for the last 15 years and no Thanksgiving was ever without this dish.  In fact is it the dish the family always requests we make.  Since we are having friends over today for dinner , we put this as the first thing on the menu.

Long story short, when the squash bas baked and we took it out, the large glass lid slipped off the dish, hit the glass on the oven door, bounced off landed on the floor and shattered into a thousand little pieces. Our half done squash ended up with some glass shards imbedded in it and off to the bin it went.

This is our first Thanksgiving outside Canada, and the first one without the double baked butternut squash, despite our best efforts!

    Ruined the whole day. Not to mention an hour of finding and cleaning shards of glass all over the kitchen!
