Mexican Thanksgiving

Be sure at the very least to click on the photo of Sandy in the turquoise shirt to see the bonus view in the mirror.

Matt wants to know what we are going to do with all the leftover turkey. In past years, I’ve used it to make turkey and dressing and cranberry sandwiches. Yum. When we were young, we made them on my mom’s rolls–made extra large for this express purpose. This year, however, I went to a restaurant with five friends. The meal was the traditional turkey, dressing, potatoes and gravy, sweet potatoes and cranberry sauce, but the salad and desserts were works of art. The dessert was pumpkin pie, a pumpkin swirl cake and a pumpkin puree with raspberry sauce. Followed by an amaretto foamy iced drink that was to die for. Love the photo of Sandy that somehow captured all of our reactions in the mirror.  That was good fortune, not planned.

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

      I don’t know but it tastes like eggnog, nutmeg ice and some other liquid –perhaps carbonate water blended to a froth. I didn’t pick up the amaretto but it had a wonderful flavor. It may have had rompope in it,which tastes like eggnog. Since after I drank it, someone said there was a menu and that’s were it said it was an amaretto drink. I’ll try to duplicate and tell you what I did.
