Thanksgivingukkah: Drumsticks and Dreidels!

Wednesday, November 27th, 2013

Drumsticks and dreidels. Gobble, gobble up the gold gelt. Mashed sweet potatoes and menorahs. Ok, ok…I’ll stop! But seriously, Thanksgivingukkah is a once in a lifetime event—literally, as it won’t happen again for another 70,000 years. I can’t even begin to count how many generations away that would be. Here are some unforgettable ways to celebrate this mash-up of two of the best holidays.

It’s too late now to order it, but how funny is this Turkey Menorah? Or Menurkey? Definitely get these fall-colored candles to really take the theme home! Both available at The Jewish Museum Shop.

If you want to make your own, you could use the structure of this crayon turkey and use candles instead! From Parents.com.

Every rare event needs a T-shirt to commemorate it. This one, Light, Liberty, and Latkes, is for sale at Modern Tribe.

Check out this sandwich, called the Thanksgivukkah Double Down. It’s a classic leftover turkey sandwich on turkey schmaltz-fried sweet potato latkes. Also on the sandwich: cranberry applesauce and shaved brussels sprouts, dressed in warm schmaltz-cider vinegar dressing. With a side of gravy, for dunking. Um, yes, please. Recipe at Food 52.

But tonight, the first night, is still all about the blue and white and applesauce (sans cranberry) on latkes. Enjoy the first of eight great nights of Hanukkah!

It’s Time for Turkey Crafts!

Monday, November 11th, 2013

It’s time to step away from the ghosts and goblins, pack up your tombstones and your spider webs, and move on to a less frightful, and more delightful holiday…Thanksgiving. I find it a real challenge to make a turkey craft that feels unique and adorable at the same time; this has gotten my wheels turning and I’m determined to share a fresh idea made by yours truly before Turkey Day rolls around. In the meantime, here are a few of my faves!

Ok, so I’m tooting my own horn a little bit—I made this guy for Parents magazine a few years ago, but I still think he reigns king over all cute turkey crafts!

An embroidery hoop turkey? Genius! Love how modern and clean this little guy is styled. Find instructions at All Free Kids Crafts.

Made by Joel always nails it with simple crafts that still look great, and he didn’t miss with this cool cardboard turkey.

I also feel very attached to these little turkeys that act as place cards on your holiday table. Did you notice his feet are made from bobby pins? From Parents.com.

If the place cards are too much work, make these adorable napkin rings turkeys instead! From The Country Chic Cottage.

Every holiday deserves a puppet, and these turkeys made from cereal boxes are to die for! From Plum Pudding.
