It's been a crazy
week for me so apologies for the late idea notice, but Pete came up with a good tailgate theme, and Shane is planning to take it up another notch as, mercifully, we close out the home season vs. State Penn.
As for the meet-up time, let's say 4 p.m. at the usual spot.
Kick-off is 8 p.m., and our team sucks but we appear to have great weather for this time of year.
Ticket-wise, Kathy and Evan have claimed Pete's 2 extras, so if others in the group have unused tickets please speak up.
Since we're trying to avoid all things bland or chain-like from central Pennsyltucky, we're going to put together a Thanksgiving-themed menu, with hot-sliced turkey (warmed on the grill) and all of the sides, either stuffed on a Nino's sub roll or Shane's idea...
The "Spudwich," using two fried potato skins as the bread that you stuff w/your turkey and other stuff.
The genesis of this idea came from Monmouth Park's food truck festival, where Shane savaged a turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce and gravy spudwich. I tried it and can vouch for its tastiness.
We'll pick up the turkey (Costco has a good pre-cooked breast that just needs warming), do the skins and sub rolls and, with all of the byproducts of gutting a few dozen spuds, mashed potatoes.
If anyone has good Thanksgiving dishes, feel free to contribute. We could use stuffing (veggie or sausage) and gravy, in particular. Desserts and drinks, of course, are welcome. Bourbon might be involved.
Anyway, keep the chatter going in the comment field below, and please note what you can contribute to the Thanksgiving-themed spread.
