Thanksgiving may be fast approaching, but don’t forget about Friendsgiving! It’s the perfect excuse to get together with your closest friends and start new traditions during the holidays! It’s also a brilliant way to have that dinner party trial run before the actual Thanksgiving day. You can make it as fancy or as casual as you want.
Throwing a Friendsgiving, or let’s be honest, any dinner party, can be stressful. But we want to make it as easy for you as possible! Each week this month we will be giving you dinner party ideas through the meals we offer. This week we have a handful of meals that pair well together and can make planning a dinner party quick and easy!
For an Asian cuisine Friendsgiving consider ordering these meals this week:
- TERIYAKI SALMON BOWL WITH BABY BOK CHOY
- TERIYAKI TOFU BOWL WITH BABY BOK CHOY
- THAI PORK BURGERS
- THAI SHRIMP CAKES WITH CILANTRO LIME SLAW
- CHINOIS SALAD
Double or Triple a Meal, easy peasy this week!
Do you want a quick meal you can throw in the oven for Friendsgiving? Order 2 or 3 of our BLACK BEAN + SWEET POTATO ENCHILADAS (they are so delicious!) and ask your friends to bring the side salads. Just don’t forget the margaritas!
If your needing a new baking dish for this meal (mine is looking a little old these days) our chef recommends these Pyrex Baking Dishes. They transfer heat really well, you can see through them to make sure you aren’t burning your food, AND they are cheaper then ceramic dishes!
Another pairing of meals on the menu this week is soup! Soup season is here, and come on, everyone loves soup! Take a look at these soup options for your Friendsgiving! The sliders in our Roasted Cauliflower Soup with Sage Pork Sliders would be a perfect appetizer before the main soup course. We have them as Gluten Free Sliders, but we are also offering Slider Buns as an add this week, for those of you, like me, who crave bread. 🙂
How about Breakfast for Dinner?
Who doesn’t love Breakfast for Dinner?! Enjoying a hearty breakfast with friends in the evening can be a really fun new tradition! We normally only offer one breakfast meal a week, but this week we have three on the menu!
My cast iron skillet is my best friend when it comes to making Shakshuka. If you don’t have your own cast iron, here’s a Lodge Cast Iron that our chef highly recommends!
All in all, whatever you decide to do for Friendsgiving, remember that the most important part is sharing a meal together with friends you love.
When you cook with love, the food always tastes better. 🙂
