Looking Waaaaay Ahead

Anyone notice that Thanksgiving and the first day of Hanukkah are one and the same this year? Sufganiyot stuffing, anyone?

Ladies and gentlemen....The Tur-Dunkin'

  1. It won't happen again in our lifetime and hasn't happened in a LONG time. The earliest in my lifetime was 1991 when it was the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend.

    I think latkes in the shape of turkeys should be at the top of the list. Need to find those turkey cookie molds!

    1. Too far ahead for me!
      But latkes as an app, turkey for dinner, sufganiyot for dessert. 3 of my top foods.

          I may finally have to pull the trigger, Avi.

            Will be the tenth year for our deep fried turkey

        2. This has never occurred before and next time this will occur will be in the year 79,811. Check out this graph.

          While I am a die hard smoked turkey guy...this will be the year of the deep fried turkey for shizzel!

            Not true. What the author of that site forgot is that Thanksgiving has not always been on the fourth Thursday of November, so it has happened before. And there's no guarantee that it will always remain on the fourth Thursday of November, so it might happen again sooner than you think.

            Chanukah, on the other hand, is fixed on the 25th of Kislev and the following week.

              That's true. It wasn't Lincoln who made the the fourth, it was FDR. It used to be the LAST Thursday in many places. And in some cases, it might have been something else entirely, though still typically late autumn. Still, it's pretty cool and obviously rare.

            2. re: gotcholent

              I wrote about this a while ago. It's happened before and it will happen again:

                  I'm not a fan of sufganiyot, but I'd try that!
