Thanksgiving Dinnner In One Tasty Bite
"For some of us, the best part of Thanksgiving comes from a forkful of flavors all swirled together -- turkey, gravy, cranberry and stuffing. It`s a savory symphony in your mouth.
Chefs in New York City are experimenting with putting together all of those ingredients into a one-bite Thanksgiving dinner.
Right now you can buy a croissant at Milk Bar in the East Village (and at the location in Washington, D.C.) stuffed with turkey, gravy and cranberries in a celery-flavored dough. There`s also a Gobble Gobble meatball with ground turkey, dried cranberries and stuffing at a local chain called the Meatball Shop.
For another all-in-one bite Thanksgiving, you can visit Mimi Cheng`s Dumplings."
Turkey is the blandest meat on Earth, it`s the gravy, cranberry and stuffing that makes me stuff my stomach with a ton of turkey and fixings on Thanksgiving.
I applaud the chefs in New York City for attempting to put all the delicious Thanksgiving ingredients into a one-bite Thanksgiving dinner. But the gourmet restaurants mentioned in the NPR article will charge you a small fortune for a Thanksgiving croissant, meatball or dumpling.
I`d rather gorge on a basic Thanksgiving meal at a soup kitchen. I hope all my readers will have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day whether it`s at a gourmet restaurant, at a soup kitchen, or at home with friends and family.
