TRAYF ALERT! An idea related to Thangsivikah idea #3

Do you know what Poutine is?  It’s french fries and gravy (like they have in Baltimore) with cheese curds.

Well, Thanksgivvikuah idea #3 is–potato latkes with turkey gravy!  I overheard someone at Etz Chayim mention it.

I was overcome with admiration.  I asked the Etz Women if anyone who might have said it, and Sharon Fiekowsky said it was her, so thanks, Sharon!  What I forgot to ask her is: what was she doing at Etz that I could overhear her? Maybe at a baby-naming?

Anyway.

If  people want something mashed that will accomodate a bit more gravy, well, there’s lots of choices: Mash some more potatoes, or serve grits, mashed or pureed turnips or chestnuts or cauliflower or parsnips or celeriac, or, heavens to betsy MASH THE SWEET POTATOES!

If you click on the title of this post, which I see as purple–the top line, where it says TRAYF ALERT!  you will be directed to an article from the Toronto Star, which is about a cross-cultural poutine, one made with butter chicken sauce and cheddar instead of gravy and cheese curds,  just so you know I’m not the only fusion-crazy, line-blurring person out there.
