Happy Thanksgiving from the OOM team!
By Michael on November 24th, 2011
Most days, we write for you but today, we are writing TO YOU, our readers. Thank you for not only reading but engaging with us each day! We may not be able to share Kristin‘s macaroons Morgan‘s Mac & Cheese but we thought we’d share a Thanksgiving feast of another sort, one entirely made out of books!
Jessica and I spent some time in our kitchens of choice…The Scholastic Store and Scholastic Library…and we’ve come up with a banquet of books! So wash your hands, grab a napkin, knife, fork and A BOOKMARK!
This may only happen in my house but Thanksgiving always involved my Mom putting out a tray of olives before anything else was ready (which my sister and I finished a few minutes after she went back into the kitchen. Also keeping in mind we might need some music, I am starting our feast with Elvis and Olive. Also for starters, we’ll have some crudites from the pages of How Are You Peeling?
But that’s only the beginning, once you sit down to the table, you’ll find more savory goodness:
- I’m not sure how they compare to my mashed potatoes but Math Potatoes will surely require the addition of some salt and pepper.
- I’m not sure about the rhino part but Jess dug up a book called Rhino, Rhino Sweet Potato by Francine Prose that we both now feel the need to sample.
- Luckily, we also planted The Carrot Seed a few months ago so we can have candy carrots!
- Also on the books to sample list, Exploding Gravy!
And for the main course, 10 Fat Turkeys!
But my favorite part is still to come…DESSERT! We’ll start with Pie. I think we should have a few options, though. Maybe some Runaway Pumpkin pudding? And we’ll of course top everything off with Ice Cream Cones for Sale!
We hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving and as always, feel free to add your own suggestions to our feast!
