A Mexican Thanksgiving Feast

Today is Thanksgiving. We put a bit of a spin on the traditional Thanksgiving this year. John's parents came to visit so we decided that rather than cooking a big Thanksgiving turkey for four, we would do something a bit different. This year we made a Mexican feast. Don't get me wrong, we still ate like pigs, but no turkey, stuffing and mashed potatoes. We made red mole, green mole, steak fajitas, Mexican rice and refried beans. We kind of switched gears for both our appetizer and dessert course... I guess you could say they were more American. For an appetizer we had stuffed mushrooms and for dessert Rocky Road ice cream with chocolate syrup. We had great conversation and great food. Who knows, maybe it could become a tradition.

I have to admit it felt a bit funny without a turkey. That's the first time ever, but tomorrow I'm having turkey with all the fixings at my parents' house. I guess somethings never really change (and probably shouldn't).

Happy Turkey Day!
