Thanksgiving on a Stick: A new way to celebrate the holidays
The perfect meal if one of the things you're thankful for is the State Fair
For some the State Fair could never be over soon enough; for the rest of us, we will be pining away for food on a stick for the next 11 months. If you find yourself in the latter group, there's a great way to enjoy that food-stick sensation and celebrate the upcoming holiday season. I call it Thanksgiving on a Stick.

In a medium bowl make a simple marinade of: 2 spoonfuls balsamic vinegar 3 spoonfuls olive oil 4 cloves of garlic chopped 2 spoonfuls fresh lemon juice and a little salt and pepper
Add 1 1/2 lbs JennieO turkey tenderloins cut into 1-inch squares. Stir to coat and set aside for anywhere from 15 minutes to 2 hours.
Make a box of Stove Top Stuffing according to the directions, let it cool. Add 1/2 beaten egg and stir. Roll into small balls and set aside.
Balls of stuffing
Put turkey and stuffing balls on skewers, alternating stuffing balls and turkey. Place on a hot and oiled grill for 3 to 4 minutes, then flip. Allow to cook until turkey is firm.
Remove and serve with gravy and/or cranberry sauce.
Enjoy, and remember--only 319 days left until the annual food-stick-get-together opens its gates again.
