Friendsgiving Essentials

We can all agree that the only thing better than Thanksgiving dinner is TWO Thanksgiving dinners. So this week as everyone gets their to-do lists organized, we shall toast to the genius who created Friendsgiving.

Obviously the critical question on your Friendsgiving to-do list is: what pie am I making!? I would be seriously offended if that wasn’t your first priority.

But people also get hungry for non-pie foods (weird…), and thirsty for things that are not pie shakes (strange…), and they want to take instagram worthy pics (gosh humans are needy). So I’ve compiled a comprehensive list of Friendsgiving essentials for the overachiever in all of us.

Time to roll out the fat pants.

Fill your plate

Friends don’t let friends get hangry.

The real reason I need fat pants is stuffing. If it was acceptable I’d probably eat an entire meal of the glorious dish. WOW your friends with this drool-worthy wild mushroom stuffing

No one says no to bacon—except maybe your one vegetarian friend—but that just means more bacon for you. Check veggies off your list with these bacon brussels sprouts. Yes, you do need these in your life right now.

Fill your glass

Drinks worthy of a toast.

Make fancy plum & thyme prosecco cocktails that will encourage lot’s of *cheers*

Or, if you want to make your life a little easier, make a fun, crowd-pleasing punch in advance

Fill your already full guests

No one will judge if you eat dessert first.

You know I could go on and on about your pie options. Feel free to go the basic route with a show-stopping pumpkin pie.

But if you’re feeling a bit adventurous consider a bourbon pear pie or maybe a salty honey pie. Literally the options are ENDLESS.

 Fill your camera roll

If you didn’t instagram, did it really happen?

No matter which pie you choose, go all out with your pie crust: add some leaf cutouts, put something witty on top, craft a mind-blowing turkey out of dough…whatever floats your boat. Cue the impressed snapchats.

Note to self, take cute pics before your second helping of stuffing. Regardless, a cute banner takes your friendsgiving to the next level. Head to your nearest craft store and get to work. Stickers and pre-cut paper are your friend–or you can be a lunatic like me and cut scrapbook paper into the shape of leaves by hand.

Cheers to an epic Friendsgiving!
