My friends and I would go on a bike ride and call it the turkey trot—up to Sand Point in Nisene Marks. We did different places, but I remember doing that ride quite a bit. Works up an appetite.

We would take a blank piece of paper and everyone would write two lines, and then you fold the paper over so you can only see the bottom line, and then you pass it on to the next person. So basically everybody only writes two lines. And at the end of it, you get to read the whole thing and it’s amazing how it all connects.

We just go all Mexican. So there’s no bird, no gravy, no mashed potatoes. It’s frijoles and nopales, and chili verde. We’ve been doing it for 22 years.

Every year on Thanksgiving we have mimosa and pies for breakfast to start off the day before we have Thanksgiving dinner.
