Another year, another successful Thanksgiving dinner party. Who says you have to be American to celebrate this occasion? That’s definitely not a rule I obey. Thanksgiving to me, is the perfect excuse to invite a group of friends over, for some QT and to eat sweet potato topped with marshmallows alongside your main meal, followed by mountains of dessert.
I stick to the same format each year: friends are invited, the RSVP’s come in and each person is allocated a particular item to cook. We end up with:
Cornbread * Roast Chicken (we don’t bother with Turkey, this is Thanksgiving OUR WAY) * Roast Vegetables * Stuffing * Green Bean Casserole with Fried Onions * Sweet Potato Casserole with Marshmallows * Cranberry Sauce * Gravy * Pumpkin Pie * Magnolia Banana Pudding
And the night would not be complete without surprise treats and take home goody bags. I recently mastered the skill of making fortune cookies, however they seemed too predictable so I went with ‘Oh How Unfortunate!’ Cookies, which you can learn to make here.
For my friends to have something to take home, I made Cookie Dough to Go and you can learn to make these here.
