Maybe it’s the dip in temperatures but this year we decided on a Caribbean theme for Thanksgiving. Each year we try a new spin on Thanksgiving, last year it was all Mexican fare but today it was plantain time!
Here’s what we had on the menu…
Grilled turkey breast marinated with jerk seasoning.
Ropa vieja, a Cuban style shredded beef dish
Mofongo, a traditional Caribbean dish made with fried plantains, bacon, and heaps of garlic
Jerk-spiked rice with anise, cinnamon, cumin, and red beans
Dinner rolls with pineapple juice in the mix
And yes, I’m headed to the gym tomorrow.
