Today: The intersection of two holidays means potatoes for everyone.
This Thursday marks the momentous overlap of Thanksgiving and the first night of Hanukkah, or as some like to call it, Thanksgivukkah. If there were ever a poster child for such an occasion, it would be the potato. The versatile spud can be shredded for latkes, mashed, layered in a gratin or salt-roasted. And since this holiday only comes around once every 70,000 years, you should probably make as many potato dishes as possible to celebrate. These links will help.
