Friendsgiving is my favorite day of the year. It’s an occasion that kicks off a season of gratitude and allows me to celebrate my favorite people. This year’s event will go down as one of my best days ever. All of my best friends were there and the babies.
It’s fun and surreal to watch the kiddos, they’re getting so big so quick. Maddy is the perfect babysitter and loves to watch Lucas. Gwenny and Cindel have transitioned from frienemies to friends and independently asked for a playdate. The little boys have some work to do on their friendship but I’m sure Lucas and Cirdan will be having their own fun next year. Lily and Emily will surely join the fray, this year they were simply admired.
We switch up the theme for the meal each year and this time around it was Asian inspired.
- Sweet and Sour chicken (a big hit!)
- Chop Suey
- Mongolian Beef
- Spring rolls
- Shrimp Goyas
- Crab Ragoons
I made WAY too much rice and our oven broke but those were the only hiccups. Although the way the Lions played against the Browns was terrifying.
Our thankfulness tree has plenty of leaves and I can’t believe we’ll be replacing it with a Christmas tree next weekend!
One thought on “Friendsgiving”
I love the idea of Friendsgiving! I like your idea of having different themes instead of just a traditional Thanksgiving. I have some friends who have a party every year the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Everyone comes with their leftovers or a new dish and they relax, eat, and enjoy each other’s company.
