While Thanksgiving is a time to be grateful for family, Friendsgiving gives us an opportunity to be thankful for friends.
As we get into the cold winter months, one starts getting into the holiday mood. Libraries start their holiday programs. Shop and Malls get decorated with Holiday decor and sales pop-up to sell you the latest gadgets and kitchen gizmos. Basic items for roasting a turkey – Turkey pan, Gravy boats and pie plates, platters, casseroles all out are out for the holiday season!
Thanksgiving is usually a family meal in an American Tradition. We celebrate it each year with gusto. Here is a traditional menu keeping in mind the local New England harvest of corn, cranberries, yams and potatoes.
Appetizers of cheese and nuts, chicken puffs, nachos and dips.
Fresh garlic bread
Baked carrots, or Baked yams
Corn on the side
Green beans casserole
Dessert is an american Apple pie or a Mincemeat Pie
Festivities and meal preparation begin around noon, with a plan to eat “dinner” in the late afternoon.
Friendsgiving is is everything like the above Thanksgiving except with friends! As immigrants many of us are by ourselves and come as students, there is no family around. If one is fortunate you get invited to a thanksgiving meal at a co-workers home.
Or throw a small Friendsgiving and enjoy the warmth of company. Make new friends and get going on a Happy Friendsgiving!
Looking forward to celebrating with you all then!
