Our Dominican friends had never had a traditional turkey dinner before (they certainly have had turkey and potatoes, but not all the rest!), and they were afraid of the stuffing, which I found to be funny. They all ate everything else on the plate and left the stuffing because they didn't know what it was. It wasnīt until I explained what was in it and how it is cooked that they decided to be adventurous and try it...and they all liked it! One of them ate all of their serving, and the others ate most of it, which was quite impressive. Nicole also made her family's secret recipe of rum punch, which was delicious - complete with frech fruit and everything!
Nicole had forgotten her dessert (home-made brownies), so for dessert, we had to settle for a bottle of white wine instead...and I think everyone was okay with it :)
And, of course, no holiday in the DR would be complete without a Dominos tournament! We watched the movie ĻJunoĻ and played 2 rounds of Dominos - and my team won both times )this was mostly not due to me, although I did win a few hands - but I still suck compared to everyone else)!
Anyway, I thought it might be interesting to let you know that I was able to celebrate Thanksgiving here, and it turned out pretty close to like being at home! I hope that everyone at home had a great long weekend and enjoyed some yummy turkey too!
