My day started out lovely! I went to class and did my presentation on Thanksgiving, making sure to let it be known that the Pilgrims (from England and Spain) killed many Native Americans after the Native Americans taught them how to fish and grow different types of food....then, I lightened up the mood by telling them that many people volunteer to feed the less fortunate, go to the Macy's Day Parade, and of course, shop on Black Friday!
It's after 1am and I am sitting in my kitchen waiting for my sweet potatoes (Spanish: Boniatos or Batatas) to finish cooking. I couldn't find pie crusts earlier (had to explain what I was looking for in my best broken Spanish) so I gave up and am now making regular sweet potatoes. Here is a lovely before picture! Tomorrow or in a few days I will posts pics of the finished product and of our (my American colleagues and I) Thanksgiving dinner!
