Menurkey: Menorah + Turkey
We totally bought the Thanksgivukkah cards and mailed them to the family... easy way to sidestep the holiday card conundrum this year!
Today we are going to my friend's place for Thanksgiving dinner. He's deep frying a turkey (perfect for a Thanksgiving overlapping with the "miracle of the oil" holiday), I'm bringing challah stuffing. For Yom Kippur I made 2 challahs, one to eat and one to freeze. I still hadn't pulled it out of the freezer after 3 months, so I figured stuffing was a good use. I cubed it yesterday and set it out to stale overnight, per the recipe.
Martha Stewart's pumpkin chocolate chip squares for dessert, quickly becoming my go-to fall recipe: I've already made them for 2 other events this fall! They are delicious and pretty easy, but they do need to cool completely before you cut them (or they fall apart and end up on the floor- personal experience) so I made them last night and cut them this morning.
Happy Thanksgiving! Happy Hanukkah! Happy Thanksgivukkah!
Edited to add:
Finally the Hanukkah float made its way through the parade. I was waiting for this all day! Yay!
