A 1940’s Thanksgiving?

Here in Canada, on Monday October 12, 2009 it is Thanksgiving… a day to mark the end of harvest where we all get the day off work and eat a ton of food and get together with families or friends…

So far my 1940’s Experiment has been based on WWII rationing in Great Britain as that is where I have lived nearly all my life HOWEVER I have been living in Nova Scotia, Canada for 5 years now so I think it only right that I mark our thanksgiving this year by doing some research and having a typical meal that Nova Scotians would have done during WWII.

Is there someone out there who knows how Thanksgiving was celebrated in Canada during WWII? What food got put on the table?

I’m off to Google!
