"Happy Thanksgiving" Community Lunch
Friday 11/18/2016 Everyone had a great time at the "Thanksgiving Community Lunch" we hosted. Food was cater by "Casa Latina" everyone love it. Everyone enjoyed themselves a lots of talking and socializing. There was a raffle for 3 gifts and the tickets were given out while we waited for the "Red Beans" to be deliver so it could be served with the white rice. The restaurant personnel forgot. After we received it the guest were there so I did not get up to take a photo but the people enjoy the "Arroz Con Abichuela". Every time I hear I want "Arroz con Abichuela" I smile because I think of Marc Anthony and Gente de Zona singing "Arroz Con Abichuela Puerto Rico Te Lo Regalo!".I had Arroz con Gandules, Pernil, Turkey, Mixed Salad. Dessert Pumpkin Pie with Whipped Cream that I bought at Sam's Club. My husband had Arroz con Abichuela, Pollo Guisado, Pernil, Mixed Salad.Dessert Pumpkin Pie with whipped Cream.There were 3 other dessert that people made Cake, Brownie and a Rice Pudding. The Pumpkin Pie was the 1st one to go. One of the lady sitting at our table told the coordinator "I am going to win one of the prizes!".Sure enough she won the last gift. Happy for her :) We had 3 speaker after the lunch. 2 women spoke about the free services in our community. The man spoke about "United Health Care". The music was nice too.Club, Merengue, Salsa Dura or Old School Salsa the faster the better to dance :) We stay to help clean up with the coordinator & some of the member of the committee. Some ran LOL.There is a private company that come Friday night to clean. Awesome Time with our community.
