Thanksgivvukah, have you heard of it? For those of you who are still in the dark (there is already a Facebook and Twitter account for Thanksgivvukah, t-shirts for sale in NYC, and lots of time off for the kids), it’s Thursday, November 28, 2013, when for the first time in my lifetime, maybe ever, the first day of Hanukkah and Thanksgiving fall on the same day. How fun is that? All those thanks can be directed to family, friends and also to the Maccabees. I’m ecstatic about it. It means one great meal and party and lots of happy people together. In the Thanksgivvukah spirit, I wanted to share recipes that combine fabulous fall flavors plus Hanukkah and Thanksgiving.
These muffins are an easy and pretty way to serve stuffing. They have great Thanksgiving traditional flavors like butternut squash, sage and cornbread and I added some Jewish deli to it to Hanukkah it up. Kielbasa or salami give it extra heartiness too.
