Our trash can turkey for Thanksgiving 2015

For the past few years we have been baking our Thanksgiving turkey in a trash can. Sounds weird and WTF, right? Here it is in pictures:

The turkey has been placed in a wire contraption my husband made out of clothes hangers. This will enable the turkey to be hung on the stake.

Bayfront Park, Hamilton Ontario

Yesterday was quite mild so instead of going for my usual walk with the dogs at the dog park, middle child and I decided to visit Bayfront Park.
