Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. Unfortunately I will be missing out on the feast this year, but has not stopped me from eyeballing all the photos on Facebook from friends back home who are preparing for the army of family about to converge on a cornucopia of food. I found this image and thought it was fitting to give a big salutation from Peru. It is a guinea pig in a pilgrim hat, and it is significant from Peru because guinea pigs are a delicacy here…so I like to think of it as s/he is thankful for having today off while every gobbles down the turkey. It is kind of like those Chic-fil-A ads where the cow is walking around saying “eat more chikn”!

Thanksgiving is one thing I always miss when I am abroad. I have tried to recreate it many times, but it just isn’t the same. And it doesn’t help when I am the only one really excited about it. People just don’t seem to get it…which I don’t understand. It is a a FEAST of delicious food. This year in Peru, unfortunately, I don’t think I am going to put the effort into making a mini Thanksgiving. I just don’t have the time.
But while I was looking around online for work, I came across this! How funny/creative/delicous! I wouldn’t mind trying that green chili dough, either! This is just another reason why I love New Mexico!
Happy early Thanksgiving to all! I think i will be going to the store tonight to stock up on bread and turkey slices. That is pretty similar to this, right? 🙂
