Canadian Thanksgiving was a few weeks ago. Let's see, this is T-day in USA and UK, right? And in gringo expat communities in Latin America that I know of. Pavo (turkey) y guacamole tortas, ay yi yi!

But guess what? The storied Pligrims+Indians "first Thanksgiving" in North America was NOT a Thanksgiving festival! Thanksgivings were traditional religious rituals, common in Europe for centuries. The Pilgrims had had numerous Thanksgivings, no Indians invited, no outsiders. The harvest feast we commemorate now was just that, a secular feast, noisy and drunken, so boisterous that neighboring aboriginals wandered in to see what the ruckus was about.

We've gotten lazy (immediate family, I mean). We're not doing another round of cleanup and cooking and more cleanup. We're going out to dinner, 14 hungry people in a private room at the St George Hotel in beautiful downtown Volcano California. We'll have an on-house XMas feast in a month, sure, but it'll be potluck, BYOB, take your own platters home afterwards, etc. Much more rational than the usual slave-labor routine. If somebody asks, I'll tell about the event that changed our approach to holiday meals.

Have a good day, y'all! Gobble-gobble!

Thanksgiving in Maine

A snow storm the day before; ice on the trees and "smoke" when the sun's rays touched the cold snow and ice. A beautiful start to a wonderful day.

Well, we also made a chicken for those who did not like turkey

Here is the chicken (and I ate half of the leftovers this morning) and some alfajores (Argentinian cookies):
