Before this week, I'd never roasted a turkey. Given how many cooking challenges I've faced in Cuba, I decided I was up to the task for this Thanksgiving and roasted two turkeys, Cuban-style.
As I done in the past when I’ve faced previous setbacks, I go to the kitchen.... Escape by peeling, chopping, and grating. Take out that cleaver and pound and smash as much as you need to. Blend stuff into smooth, digestible bits. It’s cathartic. Know that there will be a time when it’s necessary to be engaged, but that doesn’t have to be now.
