Thanksgivukkah

This year, the first night of Hanukkah falls on Thanksgiving, and so November 28, 2013 has been dubbed Thanksgivukkah.  I learned about Thanksgivukkah from my father who sent me a link to this post on Buzzfeed.

The clever folks at Buzzfeed have come up with an intriguing Thanksgiving/Hanukkah related menu: potato latkes with cranberry-applesauce, Manischwitz brined turkey, sweet potato bourbon noodle-kugel, challah-apple stuffing, horseradish-chive mashed potatoes, rye pumpkin-pye, and pecan-pie rugelach.  You can find links to all their recipes here.

I'm not so sure about sweet potato bourbon noodle-kugel, but I mentioned the recipe for pecan pie rugelach to my brother, and we might just give it a try...


You can read more about Thanksgivukkah here at the SF Chronicle and ABC News websites.

Anyone else out there planning to celebrate Thanksgivukkah?
