Friendsgiving

A Guideline for a Successful Friendsgiving:

Hold on…what’s Friendsgiving? Friendsgiving is basically recreating Thanksgiving with just your friends. AKA another excuse to hang out and gorge on some deliciousness.

How:
Instead of putting the burden on one or two people to provide for everyone else, make it a potluck. Everyone is in charge of a certain dish they need to bring. Sometimes, a friend might need to borrow a serving dish or your oven. If you’re the host, make sure you know this information ahead of time so everyone’s not waiting on a certain dish to finish cooking.

Also, don’t feel the need to make everything from scratch. That can sometimes be frustrating and not turn out well. Unless you’re a baller in the kitchen with mad Chef Ramsay skills…then by all means go for it. There’s nothing wrong with getting a little help from the prepared foods section.

When:
It’s a good idea to do Friendsgiving before Thanksgiving. Why? Let’s be real here, once Thanksgiving is over people ditch pumpkins and spice for sleigh bells, snow and Santa.

What You’ll Need:
It’s important to remember a few key items you will need to pull off a good Friendsgiving.
-Platters and big serving dishes
-Ice
-Enough cups/utensils for everyone
-A good thanksgiving playlist
-An empty belly because it’s about to go down in chow town

Where:
It’s a good idea for the friend with the biggest space or most seats to host Friendsgiving.

Why:
Uhh…why not. Good food, good friends not to mention it makes for an aesthetic instagram story.

Final Note:

If you’re not the host, please help clean up. It’s a nice thing to do and the host graciously let people destroy their kitchen / dinning area for the sake of Friendsgiving.
