Canadian Thanksgiving is coming up and our large family usually celebrates it at our house. This year though, a nephew is being married on that weekend and because there is so much to do, I announced there would be no Thanksgiving meal. I started to feel guilty almost immediately, so, as a compromise I said I would make up a couple of large trays of cabbage rolls (my Mom has a killer recipe using Savoy cabbage) and people could drop in and have some. I will serve Calabrese rolls and butter, but what is appropriate to eat with cabbage rolls (they are a meal in themselves with protein, starch & carbs), but somehow it looks a little cheesy not to have a few sides to serve with them. Any ideas out there? Remember, I have very little time to prepare anything elaborate and Mom and I will also be making homemade pumpkin pies, in order to avoid a mutiny!
