Last Friday I rang the holiday season in a touch early to celebrate Friendsgiving, the holiday invented during the Thanksgiving season to be celebrated with close friends before all dispersing back to our hometowns for turkey and stuffing with our families.Thanksgiving

This was my first Friendsgiving celebration in my post-college life, which definitely brought a more adult-like and mature energy compared to the take-out orders and beer we threw together in college. This year was elegant and filled with all of the Thanksgiving staples like a full turkey, brined for 12 hours; a ham; mashed potatoes; and stuffing.Thanksgiving

The evening was hosted by my good friends at their home in Queen Village, where they welcomed 10 of us for the feast. My boyfriend and I volunteered to bring the stuffing, mashed potatoes and ham. After grocery shopping the night before, we realized we may have underestimated the effort that each of our dishes required, but nonetheless we brought the ingredients home and got to work.Thanksgiving

While my boyfriend peeled and chopped 5 pounds of potatoes, I got started on a cornbread and sausage stuffing.Thanksgiving

There is definitely a sense of pride you get from watching your closest friends enjoy the food you made, especially the stuffing that will now be an annual staple for the holidays. I particularly loved the Brussels sprout and bacon dish that my friend Mackenzie made and the fresh prosciutto and baguettes that our friend Sal brought from the Italian Market.Thanksgiving

I have always loved the food served on Thanksgiving, so I was happy to celebrate a bit early while having the third Thursday of November still to come. And aside from the food and fun, I appreciated the time to sit down with friends, that I consider family, and share my gratitude for them all.

I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving and holiday season. Cheers!
