with cook once, eat twice elegant menus & recipes

November: It's that time to surf and search for the best kosher Thanksgiving recipes.   The chill is in the air, leaves golden and glowing in all their glory, the days are shorter. But how do we really  know it's November? 

The magazines, of course. It's amazing how many ways there are to photograph a turkey! So much fuss for one meal.  Shabbat observant Jews who prepare multi course meals for ten or more people every week marvel at all the marketing that goes in to this one event. 

How to Make Thanksgiving Kosher

One Jewish approach to Thanksgiving is for those who prefer to avoid an extra day of cooking, serving and overeating.  They slide Thursday's Thanksgiving feast into the Shabbat meal on Friday night. Others may appreciate that extra day off more traditionally, as a relaxed time to visit with family and friends who live far away or lead different kinds of lives.  Many communities offer a Yom Iyun, a day dedicated to extra Torah study, making the best possible use for those with this weekday off. 

Sometimes the question may arise, Is Thanksgiving Jewish?  And theKosherChannel has  a very good answer here.

Meanwhile, The Kosher Channel has some wonderful kosher Thanksgiving recipes and two cook-once-eat-twice menus for you, plus time saving ideas that lay the foundation for a truly noble Shabbos table, Queen in the kitchen style. So read on!
