THIS IS US, SEASON TWO, EPISODE: A MANNY-SPLENDORED THING
THIS IS US: PIGS IN A BLANKET RECIPE
The weather in California has been amazing ever since the start of November. The sun is still shining but there has been a crispness in the air that only means holidays are coming! While I’m so excited that it’s November, it’s also crunch time to figure out what I’m doing for the holidays.
At this point of the month, I’m sure almost everyone is trying to figure out what on earth they should make for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner. It’s got to be easy and it’s got to be portable. These pigs in a blanket with nut cheese fits the bill. This is especially great to make for any, This Is Us, fans you have in your circle of friends or family. The scene comes from the second season of the series in a hilarious moment between Toby and Kate. Toby prepares a plate of pigs in a blanket and nut cheese for Miguel in preparation for their arrival.
These pigs in a blanket reheat well and and the nut cheese can be made in advance. I purchased the mini sausages from Whole Foods but just use what you can find and cut the sausages into the sizes your prefer. As for the nut cheese, please note that the cashews need to be soak prior to making the recipe. Please enjoy!
