If there's anything I really love about Puerto Rican holiday festivities, it's the food. We celebrate thanksgiving, but the menu might vary a bit. We do have out turkey, but instead of traditional american dishes like green bean casserole we trade them for traditional puertorrican yummies like rice with pigeon peas, and pasteles. In my house, my mom takes the cake for the best turkey ever. Bacon wrapped and stuffed with mofongo (a traditional plantain dish from the gods): juicy goodness! This was accompanied by steamed veggies, rice with pigeon peas, salad, and cake! Mom brought out all of her fancy platter collection and we actually sat down together at the table to eat. My cats were going nuts with the turkey fest and of course, I slipped them a few nibbles on the side.
