Can you believe we're TWO WEEKS away from Thanksgiving? I woke up this morning & was in just total shock. And, of course, full of excitement.
Thanksgiving this year is going to be a bit different, since Texas A&M is no longer playing t.u. on Thanksgiving... but our annual tradition of "friendsgiving" is still going strong. We have our friends come up and enjoy a non-traditional Thanksgiving meal the weekend after Turkey day.
We forgo-turkey for the more loved beef, and up until now, I've stuck with mostly traditional side items. But as I was thinking about Friendsgiving this morning, I was struck the urge to do more non-traditional side items. Because one can really only each so much stuffing.
So far these are on my radar....
Farro & Sweet Dumpling Squash Tartlettes
Polenta with Corn & Thyme
Butternut Squash Risotto
Tomatoes with Smoke Blue Cheese
Leek Shallot Pancetta Galette
Tough decisions! I'm hoping to have the menu mostly set this weekend, so that I can do a few test runs before the big day. Do you eat any non-traditional holiday foods on Thanksgiving?
Have a Happy Weekend!
