To be honest, I’ve never really looked forward to Thanksgiving. I always overshadow the holiday with Christmas. I’m not a fan of Thanksgiving food, but these past couple of years I’ve enjoyed it more. I love cooking and Thanksgiving gives me an excuse to go all out. Yesterday we had our friendsgiving and I had so much fun preparing for it.
Everyone brought something. I chose to bring the pie and the roasted vegetables.
I’ve made this pie several times. You can find the recipe here.
You can use this crust recipe with any pie filling.
This is the best I’ve ever made my roasted vegetables and you know I make them a lot!
To give the olive oil a garlic flavor, I fried garlic cloves in olive oil.
(1/4 cup of olive oil & 2 heads garlic)
As soon as the garlic cloves were crisp and brown, I added them and the olive oil to the baking pan.
You can add any vegetables you’d like to the dish. I used: butternut squash, zucchini, colored bell peppers, red potatoes, and sweet potatoes. I added cranberries for a fall feel and they were a great addition.
I seasoned them with brown sugar, garlic and herb, and olive oil.
I baked them for 1 hour at 380 degrees. I flipped them every twenty minutes.
We all brought our dogs to friendsgiving too.
Instead of slaving over turkey, we had chicken wings ordered from Mac’s.
I will be adding a new column to my blog called “ASK MC.” She’s a blogger over at QCPRINCESS. She honestly gives the best advice and it would be fun to do a weekly segment having her answer your questions about life.
Anyways, she made these awesome ham & cheese honey rolls. So good! Probably my favorite dish of the night.
Chicken wings > Turkey.
Everyone brought over food and we had everything you could imagine. There was more food there than my family’s thanksgiving dinners.
This was by far my favorite thanksgiving/friendsgiving meal.
There was no going back for seconds because I was stuffed and the only spot left in my stomach was reserved for dessert.
Did you have a friendsgiving this year? If so, what did you make?
