Kosher Thanksgiving in Philadelphia

Bashful3 | Nov 23, 2011 03:15 PM

Was I pleased with the folks at the Narberth Acme. I had ordered 3 spit roasted chickens, cut
into 6 pieces, plus 1/2 a turkey breast roasted, plus my grandson's favorite: kasha knishes.
I also ordered parve pumpkin pie, plus a Jewish Apple cake, and picked up 6 of their praised
cupcakes, which will be a huge hit with the grandkids: one of whom only likes vanilla, with the others
voting for chocolate.

When I got there, I asked about suitable appetizers to go on crackers, and was offered a variety
of tastes. Surprisingly, the chopped lived made from beef liver was even tastier, and had a nicer
texture than my old fave, chicken liver. I got some sort of spicy eggplant spread, plus a baba ganoush, whatever. Oh Yum. A salad, some frozen veggies, cranberry sauce, a sweet potato souffle, some potato pancakes, and some alimuninum trays for me to serve some of this food.

I'm almost embarrassed to write how little this feast for 9 cost, because the real joy here is how
easy this Thanksgiving family meal is going to be. The staff at Acme Narberth were helpful, gracious, and I won't hesitate to drive the 6 miles to do this again, and again, and again.

Why cook?

I'll report back after the feast, but it sure looks great to me, and there will be a lot of left-overs
for my daughter to take home with her. (In case you don't remember, I do not have a Kosher kitchen, but know how to self clean my oven, use paper/plastic service etc)
