We are getting close to Thanksgiving--it's hard to believe it's 3 days away.  Here in Guatemala it's not a holiday of course so  we don't actually celebrate it the usual way.  But, our annual staff meeting is this Thursday and Friday, and for the third year now, we will be having a Thanksgiving meal together with our fellow coworkers (about 50+).  I think Carlos, our director at Clinica Ezell understands what a big holiday it is for us and always tries to have several traditional dishes for us. However, there is always a craving for the special things your family has at the table, like dresssing and creamed veggies, pumpkin pie, pecan pie, rolls, etc.  Since we don't have the time to fix a big meal just for our selves, I decided to fix a few things at time this week to get a small taste of home.  Tonight we are having baked chicken and broccoli rice casserole and pumpkin pie for dessert.  Maybe tomorrow I'll make some hot rolls to go with some left over chicken! Since Kemmel is not a turkey or traditional dressing fan, I'll be fixing some cornbread dressing next week with a southwest twist to have with some pork roast.  That should hold us over until Christmas!
