Have a Happy Thanksgiving with Pumpkin Stuffing

"Pumpkin stuffing, pumpkin stuffing!"

For all you procrastinators out there (you know who you are!) here’s a really tasty Pumpkin Panade — er, stuffing — recipe for your Turkey Day feast which we served yesterday to 30 fifth graders at Michael’s Chefs Move to Schools partner, Phillis Wheatley Elementary.  That’s now 3 dishes that have been 86’ed by Ms. Rivero’s adventurous eaters.  It was the first, however, that was spontaneously rapped, one ingredient at a time!

Our multi-talented intern Renata captured the whole performance on film, posted here on the Michael’s Genuine YouTube channel. For images of the visit, see our Flickr set.

We were very proud and sent them home with a print out of the recipe and a flyer for their parents on the December 8 opening of Roots in the City Farmers Market.  16 kids will join us for the festivities and sell portions of their still-to-be-determined submission to the USDA’s Recipes for Healthy Kids Challenge with a little help from Michael and his food cart.

Remember, the Miami restaurant is closed today.  Have a happy, healthy, and tasty holiday!
