Thanksgiving

Up until the summer I had been living in Puerto Rico, where my dad is from and where I was born and had spent practically my whole life. Every year for Thanksgiving we would get together with my family and extended family at one of the aunts' house and have a typical traditional Puerto Rican Thanksgiving, which consisted of rice and pigeon peas, turkey, macaronni salad or potatoe salad.

This was the first year I spent Thanksgiving with only MY relatively new lil'family. I decided to make a full blown Thangsgiving meal. I was literally in the kitchen all day, but it was all worth it! {Sorry for my lack of makeup}!


Our little dining table with a rather large meal for the three(3) of us
cheesy mashed pottaos with parsley, green bean casserole, cranberry sauce
cornbread stuffing, creamed pearl onions, gravy
turkey breast

baby E fell asleep while eating
