Our first Thanksgiving in Mexico – notes for next year:
Make twice the mashed potatoes and half the gravy – Latino’s love their “papas” but don’t know what to do with gravy.
Don’t put butter on the table. Rolls are eaten plain.
Sweet potatoes are white – no amount of cinnamon or brown sugar will turn them to the beautiful orange color.
Chorizo is not a good replacement for Jimmy Dean’s sausage in dressing.
Buy a metal potato masher. Plastic will not hold up.
Have a working garbage disposal instead of just Elders.
Latino’s prefer their beloved Jell-O plain. Addition of fruit, cottage cheese, marshmallows and whipped cream means it won’t be eaten.
No amount of homemade chocolate chip cookies will be enough.
Don’t give everyone flu shots following dinner – it’s a downer.
