Food for Thought--Ethnic Thanksgiving
Just a question, Meltingpot readers. What does Thanksgiving taste like at your house? In our Kinky Gazpacho home, our traditional (collard greens, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, apple pie, sweet potato pie, cornbread dressing) meal is now improved with a tortilla de patatas, spanish olives and cool frosty sidra to wash it all down.
I'm just curious how the cultures come together during your holiday meal? I just read about a Mexican-American Thanksgiving meal where the turkey was served with mole sauce and corn tortillas came on the side. I also spoke to a Jamaican friend who told me she once jerked her turkey. Yummy!
So let's hear it, dear readers. Make my mouth water and dazzle me with your kinky, culinary creations.
Peace and Turkey grease!
