    1. Sweecarrocorn: A baked sweet potato stuffed with a carrot with corn kernels wedged into a slot cut into the carrot.

        lol! I need to come up with something that I can really make! (sweecarrocorn was a joke right? If not, I definitely need the recipe!)

        1. re: ricepad

          Exactly! Except I was thinking more along the lines of a carrot ball inside a Brussels sprout inside a sweet potato inside a white potato enrobed in a cranberry crust.

            1. re: ricepad

              Why not? Maybe with a little truffle/mushroom dust on top. Meet ya in the kitchen, and don't forget a melon baller for the carrots. We're gonna make them avant garde molecular guys wanna come to OUR party! '-)

                1. re: ricepad

                  Yes! Sage foam over chestnut stuffing ice cream! And egg nog truffles for dessert. We win! PARTY TIME...!!!

                    From another thread, we also need to make pea puree formed into small spheres....

                      LOL! Sort of a take-em-apart-and-put-em-back-together project! Ingenious.

            lol- you stole my humor, iw as gonna post pepcid

            or a pumpple cake


            1. We have turdurken at our annual neighborhood Festivus party and the "traditional" (circa 2005) accompaniments are latkes and mac & cheese.

              I like the idea of sides that play on the stuffed theme. Stuffing itself, twice baked potatoes, deviled eggs, brie in a phyllo crust, etc. Or, just go with your favorite sides for a normal thanksgiving.

                  Hah, that is great!

                  This giant stuffed squash from today's Post looks good to me and contains no meat nor potatoes masquerading as frosting:
