For the first time since 1888, Thanksgiving and Hanukkah fall on the same day. Many call it Thanksgivukkah, and it’s definately something to celebrate because this cosmic alignment will not happen again for more than 70,000 years!
I found some great dish ideas incorporating both the Thanksgiving and Hanukkah traditions. For the main course there is Maneschewitz-brined roast turkey. Some mouth-watering side dishes inlcude challah stuffing with turkey sausage, leeks, and cherries, sweet potato bourbon noodle kugel, and horseradish-chive mashed potatoes. Don’t forget about dessert! How does rye pumkin pie, pecan pie rugelach, and chocolate acorn dreidels sound? Yumm!
