Turkey Delight

Thanksgiving is one of Pioneer’s favourite holidays. There is nothing better than spending the entire day in your kitchen, enjoying your faux granite countertops and fingerprint-ey stainless steel appliances, while preparing a feast for your loved ones while they relax with a drink(s) and play “rock, paper, scissors” for first dibs at the stuffing.

We’re kidding, but seriously, if you’re not like Pioneer and don’t actually like feast day prep, there is a one-word local solution: Morgan’s! Our favourite local is doing all the grunt work for us, and using way better ingredients to boot. Order a turkey dinner (before Saturday morning!) and you will have butternut squash and apple soup, turkey, mashed potatoes, maple glazed heirloom carrots, sausage and sage stuffing and a pumpkin tart with cinnamon whipped cream (whew, that was a mouthful!).  Nobody has to know that it was actually Owner and Executive Chef Anne Sorrenti and her team doing all the heavy lifting with fresh, local ingredients, right?

What really sounds divine though is having your turkey, and not having to clean up the kitchen! As part of their regular, weekly Sunday roast dinner special, Morgan’s is making the turkey, and all of the sides and serving it up hot on Sunday evening. Just make sure to call for reservations, since this is one place that is sure to be 'hopping' - Morgan's also serves up Ontario Church-key and Sawdust City microbrews  plus a lengthy list of various craft beers to go with your turkey!

Speaking of beer, Morgan's is our first stop on the Pioneer Run/Walk/PubCrawlin' pub crawl on October 20th. Stay tuned for details (but if you miss them, just meet us there at 8:00 p.m. - we'll be loud and wearing Mardi Gras beads!).
