Happy Thanksgiving!

This is a belated post - happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate! I had a great (but tiring) day with my family and I'm currently resting my feet as I type this post. I know Thanksgiving has passed buuuuuut I thought I'd share some of the food from the day!

We had 14 people total, so we cooked a feast! We're Indo-Trinidadian so most of the food is Indian/Trinidadian food, but there were "neutral" dishes like baked mac n cheese, stuffing, green beans, mashed potatoes, and corn! The Trinidadian dishes included callaloo (spinach), roti (like naan), curry goat, curry chicken, curry channa, and curry mango.

I took this straight from my Insta story -- we were tired! It was a lot of cooking, washing dishes, setting up, serving, washing more dishes, and breaking down. Everything went really well!

I hope everyone had a lovely, safe Thanksgiving! The roots of the holiday aren't great but what it is supposed to represent is meaningful. I want to thank everyone who has supported me and this blog in some way - you all are amazing. Please know that I appreciate EVERYONE. Enjoy the time off and the good food!
