Happy Thanksganukah*

Thursday, November 28, will not only be Thanksgiving Day, it will also be the first day of Chanukah.  Some people have taken it upon themselves to create culinary mashups of the two holidays,  an effort I think misguided, but if the Internet is any indicator of the zeitgeist, it seems to be what some people want.   Just like when patrons ask for help finding Fifty Shades of Grey: it's not for me to judge.** My job is just to provide information. Herewith, a modest catalog of Thanskgannukah recipes: Jason Weisberger (the publisher of boingboing): has come up with a recipe for pumpkin-pie-filled sufganiot. The good people at Colorado Public Radio have a recipe for apple-cranberry latkes. From Chabad.org: butternut-squash-sweet-potato latkes and turkey egg rolls with cranberry dipping sauce. From buzzfeeed: turkey brined in maneschewitz. Rye and apple stuffing. Rye pumpkin pie. That skinnychick suggests pumpkin challah. Over at bigoven.com, chard and shallot noodle kugel. And lastly, cranberry rugelach. Chag sameach. *A name whose mellifluousness makes it vastly preferable to the grotesque "Thanksgivukah." **Yes, people are still asking for Fifty Shades of Grey. Don't worry, wait a couple of weeks and they'll be wanting Flowers in the Attic.
