Thanksgiving came a little early for me this year. Last night I had a “Friendsgiving” so, I thought that with thanksgiving coming up it would be a good theme for this week! There are so many different foods people enjoy at thanksgiving and it is known to be a day where you eat until you literally cannot fit anything else in your stomach.
At our friendsgiving, we had ham instead of turkey because it is much quicker to make and an easy alternative. And even though we did not have the typical thanksgiving turkey, we still had many other common thanksgiving foods like mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffing, salad, rolls, and cranberry sauce. With our dinner, most of us drank Martinelli’s sparkling cider, which is almost always a hit. For dessert we had apple pie, pumpkin pie, and vanilla ice cream. All the food was so delicious and it is never a bad thing to have multiple thanksgiving dinners.
Although, because this was a last minute get together, we did not have all the most common thanksgiving foods at our friendsgiving; sweet potato casserole, roasted butternut squash soup, roasted brussels sprouts, and green bean casserole are some other typical foods I see on thanksgiving that are a good addition. Also, when it comes to dessert, specifically at my house, we almost always have pumpkin pie, pumpkin bars, apple pie, and thanksgiving themed sugar cookies (my favorite). I always end up eating way more sugar cookies than I should but I just cannot help it because they are so good. I hope that you all can use some of these food ideas at your thanksgiving this year!
