By now you’re waking up to a beautiful Saturday morning and you’re wondering what to have for breakfast that doesn’t involve turkey, ham or potatoes. Or maybe you’re making an omelette with all of the above. I’m at work and finding it very hard to focus. I just put my turkey salad in the fridge and am debating where I should go get a warm coffee.
I shared my apple crisp recipe with you from friendsgiving and I hope some of you will try it and someday let me know how it turns out. Until then, here are some more pictures of friendsgiving, courtesy of Fashionista.
To start the meal off, Architetto walked in with bags and bags from Whole Foods of warm bread, salami, bruschetta and cheese. Fashionista’s friend from home was traveling all weekend and out of guilt for not being able to make anything, she nearly bought out the deli section of a local grocery store. She had bottomless bags she unpacked like Mary Poppins. Just when you thought she had pulled out the last case of cheese, out came another and another.
We had every kind of potatoes you can imagine: sweet potatoes, some under-cooked potatoes courtesy of Michigan who had a wee bit of a hangover, some of the best mashers I’ve ever had from NoVa (recipe tbd), and a potato, cheddar cheese and bacon combo from Boston Market. We had homemade corn bread, rolls, stuffing, ham, turkey from Boston Market that was the most moist bird I’ve ever had. Not only did we have the typical Thanksgiving fare, but SoCal and his girlfriend brought over an enormous cooler with vegetarian lasagna. But sadly, the oven was full and they couldn’t serve it until an hour after we’d all gorged ourselves on round one. What’s even funnier is I think Fashionista accidentally turned the oven off at one point. SoCal walked in with a box o’ wine and I thought it was a lark. Turns out he blew us all away and heated up a spiced wine on the stove. After the amazing main course, hardly anyone had room for my apple crisp, or any dessert for that matter. All I know is we all left with full bellies and smiles from Fashionista’s friendsgiving feast. Thank you to all the amazing contributions, and to Fashionista for her apartment and for kicking off Thanksgiving weekend with a bang.
