Literary Thanksgiving Dinner

As households around the country prepare Thanksgiving menus, we’ve started a  #literarythanksgiving hashtag on Twitter to collect book-related dishes.

Post your ideas in the comments or on Twitter. Here are some ideas to get you started:

James & the Giant Peach Cobbler: Roald Dahl‘s protagonist couldn’t legally have a cocktail, but hopefully you can. This peach-flavored whiskey concoction would be perfect for the pre-dinner palette.

Cloudy with a Chance of Turkey Meatballs: You could never have too much turkey on Thanksgiving. If it were up to author Judi Barrett, these Italian-style turkey meatballs would rain down from the sky.

Life of Pumpkin Pi: Dessert is a must and surely Yann Martel would give his approval for this seasonal pastry treat.

UPDATE: Here are some of our favorites:

Sarah_Skilton: PILGRIM’S PROGRESS #literarythanksgiving (too obvious? How ’bout THE OLD MAN AND THE PEAS)
la_melisma: Laura Esquivel’s LIKE WATER FOR CHOCOLATE MOUSSE PIE
kelcrocker: Faulkner’s As I Lay On the Sofa Watching Football But Really Kind of Napping
steveweddle: John McFetridge’s DIRTY SWEET POTATOES
kelcrocker: The (Green) Bean (Casserole) Trees by Barbara Kingsolver
MCSnugz: Mmmmm…The Right Stuffing

NJ713: Where the Side Dish Ends

Cyril Connolly’s THE UNQUIET GRAVY #literarythanksgiving
