African-inspired Peanut Stew

Did you make my eggplant satay?  Was the sauce not delicious?  But I had a lot of it left over and it couldn’t just go to waste, oh no.

Ava Dress Part III

Thanksgivukkah

Thanksgivukkah.  Do you know about this?  If not, you need to.  Basically, Hanukkah is so early this year that the first day falls on the same day as Thanksgiving.  Evidently this is so rare, it will not happen again for 70,000 years.  The reason behind it is super complicated, so just go with it.  Or check out this FAQ.
