I am like the turkey! I am stuffed!

I woke up this morning at 715 to start cooking the food. I had the turkey prepped the following night but cooked it in the morning. I made all the fixings too. The turkey was done at 12 and the family and I sat down at the table and ate at 1230. The turkey melted in my mouth. The potatos were creamy. I was very pleased and ate just one plate knowing later that I would eat more for dinner.

The phone rang at 430. It was Pedro. He wanted us to come to his house for dinner with him. I was still full from lunch so I mostly enjoyed the company. We ate these delicious tostadas de tinga. We got home around 930 after driving by Best Buy to laugh at people waiting in the snow. Its a tradition.

I will tell you this was a simple thanksgiving but I feel so fortunate. My life is great. It felt pretty darn good to hear Big Ro tell his mom that his gavacha could cook. He told her he made a right choice. I can cook mexican or american. I can throw down. I love my life. I would not change it.

Very sweet, though I never like being called gavacha myself. I don't even know why. But it seems very sweet how he said it.
