Cuban Thanksgiving

Despite being born in the US, I could honestly say that I have never experienced a true American Thanksgiving. We do however, celebrate this time-cherished holiday with a Caribbean flare. This is what our special menu will consist of:


Pan Cubano
Cuban Bread



Arroz Blanco
White Rice



Frijoles Negros
Black Beans



Tostones
Fried Plantain Slices


Yuca
Boiled Yucca with Garlic


Lechon 
Pig Roast


Flan 
Caramel Custard


Turron
Nougat


Cafe Cubano
Cuban Espresso


And for the adults...

Havana Club Ron
Havana Club Rum


This isn't quite the healthiest meal, but it's a special Cuban tradition. My philosophy is to let loose for one day and eat in moderation. Here are some tips on avoiding weight gain during the holidays. 

Happy Thanksgiving to all!!!!

I am thankful for the abundant life that 
I have. I am surrounded by an amazing family and 
friends. I have the best husband in the world and God
is blessing me with a sweet baby boy.
