Thanksgiving is one of my families most important traditions. Every year, Thanksgiving gets more and more evolved. It is an all day event and my dad and I usually are the ones who cook dinner, but my siblings also pitch-in. But because our family is cuban, we put our own twist to the traditional feast. I am usually in charge of the Hors d’oeuvres, the bread, some of the sides, and the desserts.
Every year we try new recipes. This year we made a goat cheese and caramelized onion flat bread. Also, I made homemade brioche bread that my aunt taught me how to bake. Last year my dad deep fried the turkey.
Some recipes are still the same like the bagel chips and ricotta. All the desserts have been the same as well as the butternut squash soup, the rice and beans, and the chorizo stuffing.
We always have family over such as my aunt and my grandparents. Sometimes our family will help us cook the rice and beans or the stuffing.
Family is a big part of our Thanksgiving, especially because it’s my grandmothers birthday on the 25th of November. We always celebrate it on Thanksgiving and we either make cupcakes or a cake for her.
