Happy Thanksgivukkah!

Because Thanksgiving and Hanukkah collided tonight, my family and friends lighted the candles on a very special menorah known as “Menurkey.”  The word “Menurkey” came from “menorah” and “turkey.”  Because turkey is the symbol of Thanksgiving and the main dish we eat at the feast, people created menorahs in a shape of a turkey to celebrate the once in a lifetime event.  The menorah behind the “Menurkey” is a very traditional menorah design even though menorahs can come in all different unique designs.

Tonight, we enjoyed variety of food including potato latkes, turkey, stuffing, vegetables, salad, and of course, pumpkin pie.  I also enjoyed one very interesting and unique dish that I never tasted before – Lobster pumpkin soup.  This dish was created as if you mixed New England and Thanksgiving together!  As you know. lobster is a very traditional dish in New England and pumpkin is an integral food for Thanksgiving feasts.
