november twenty second

i think of this as a tasty picture, if not the prettiest. and it’s a picture that makes me smile. my first thanksgiving with omar’s side of the family was a few months after we got married. a few weeks before thanksgiving i asked omar if his family did traditional thanksgiving food. “of course!” he replied. thanksgiving day came and on the table before me were turkey, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, guineos en escabeche, mofongo, and other puerto rican dishes. nine thanksgivings later i, too, would say that this is totally a traditional thanksgiving meal.
