Delicious Friendsgiving Recipes
I’m really not sure when this unofficial holiday became trendy but I like to think my friends and I were kind of pioneers in this event. Though I wish we had coined the phrase!
Back in the early 1980’s (gosh, I am dating myself) a group of us worked together and decided to have a Thanksgiving meal the Saturday before the holiday. We all had plans to visit our families on the day but just wanted to spend time together cooking.
We ended up doing this for several years with the first couple being quite comical since none of us had prepared that much food let alone cook a turkey. We would start the day off with appetizers and drinks (maybe a few!) and all contributed by making a side dish.
The kitchen was small and somehow we managed to use EVERY pot and pan and the mess was unbelievable. Also, the food items never seemed to be ready at the same time! One year all the sides were done but the turkey still had a long way to go or someone forgot the cranberry sauce! tsk tsk
Food was cold, potatoes may have been lumpy but we all enjoyed being together, laughing a lot, and that was what mattered most!
Today I am sharing recipes from myself and my blogging friends to inspire you to throw a Friendsgiving party with some classic and current recipe trends. Remember:
