Thanksgiving week us upon us, pals! While I’m excited to have a few days off of work, spend time with some of my amazing friends and see the Macy’s parade in person, I’m a little bit dreading cooking for Friendsgiving (Or Friendsgivukkah, as I’m refer to it while pretending I have Jewish friends that will be in attendance). While I’ve had my outfit picked out for a week, I’m a little more last minute when it comes to preparing my portion of the menu. I like to pretend I can hold my own in the kitchen (I CAN if you consider “holding my own” microwaving a veggie patty and eating it off of a paper towel); but in all honesty, cooking is challenge for me. Perhaps, more that it’s something-I-don’t-allot-the-time-for-because-I’m-single-and-content-eating-microwave-popcorn-everyday, and less an actual challenge. Either way, it doesn’t matter. Here are some recipes I’ve found on the web that sound awesome — so someone should probably make them and bring them to our gathering because letsbehonest, I’m bringing wine.
- Bacon + bourbon + carbs are a few of my favorite things…
- Brussel spouts with balsamic and cranberries. A perfect side!
- Growing up, brownies were kind of my specialty. This brownie pecan pie doesn’t look too daunting.
- And pumpkin bread pudding? Come on. Come. ON.
- This recipe for Spiced Cranberry Sangria looks exponentially tasty, and in all realness, is probably what will be my contribution to the holiday.
