It’s your daily Thanksgiving preview! Last year, Bitt of Raw and her husband celebrated Thanksgiving with some raw and some cooked dishes. That rosy orange stuff on top of the lettuce is sauerkraut! I’m so glad pickling is in culinary fashion these days, sauerkraut is delicious and it’s everywhere, including all of my sandwiches. Oh, leftover Tofurky sandwich with sauerkraut, I can already hear you calling my name.
Don’t forget to send me your amazing Thanksgiving photos this week! They’ll be taking over the site for the holiday weekend, it’ll be like we’re having a four-day eat-a-thon together, like a family.
Happy Thanksgiving from Bitt of Bitt of Raw! She and her husband Chris made a part-raw, part-cooked dinner with mashed potatoes and mushroom gravy, “some sort of squash/veggie/quinoa thing…that was another vehicle to eat gravy”—my kind of people!—stuffing from Raw For the Holidays, and a lettuce-and-sauerkraut salad. That sauerkraut in particular looks so good, all rosy-salmony-orangey and so crisp. I love it. Happy Thanksgiving, Bitt!
Review: Rosamunde Sausage Grill! »
Rosamunde is a shitbox hole-in-the-wall where you can order all kinds of gross-ass dead animal sausages and a couple vegan sausages. I believe they use Tofurky brand. The sauerkraut is first-rate and the grilled onions are delicious too. Basically everything you ever wanted to put on a sausage and the buns are terrific! And I’m not talking about the crazy German lady who works there! Or if I am, I’m also talking about the actual sausage buns too! The pickles are NYC Jewish deli-style too, definitely worth the buck. Other than that, you can’t really eat in but you can take your sausage to one of the 54 bars nearby and enjoy it with some beer. Sausage and beer, people love that, right? I think that’s how it goes, fuck if I know, I’ve checked out of relating to the human race like three years ago.
A final note: Whenever I come in here, I feel like recreating the breakdown scene from Half Baked* but with sausage. First I would point to the dead chicken sausage and say, “Fuck you!” and then I would point to the dead lamb sausage and say, “Fuck you!” and then I would point to the vegan sausage and say, “You’re cool!” and then, “I’m out!” Actually, I would prolly say, “I’m out, bitches!” but that wouldn’t be staying true to the film. And if I’m anything, it’s accurate. And very good-looking.
*This is a really great movie, by the way. It was written by Dave Chappelle, directed by Tamra Davis (WHO ALSO DIRECTED THE PEERLESS BILLY MADISON and is married to Beastie Boy Mike D!) and has a cameo by Tommy Chong as the Squirrel Master. Have I piqued your interest?
