Friendsgiving is a growing trend for those who live too far away from their homes to go back for the Thursday feast or just in addition to Thanksgiving where friends come together and drink and eat pie. Since Thanksgiving is a holiday to be thankful, Friendsgiving is to gather up your closest friends and just have a good time together. In the hustle and bustle of life getting all your friends together can be difficult and doesn't happen as much as you would like so this is the perfect excuse to hang out.
A good menu for Friendsgiving usually consists of the non typical Thanksgiving meal. I generally have three or four family Thanksgivings to attend so by the time Friendsgiving comes around I am SO tired of turkey, potatoes, and cooked veggies. Good ideas for some Friendsgiving menus are multicultural meals such as Chinese themed, Latin themed, or Italian themed foods. Or do something off the wall and have ballpark themed food. (Yes, I said ballpark themed.) My friends and I decided to go wacky and creative with the ball park theme. You can go all out with the decorations for this theme too to make it extra memorable. Here is the menu for this year:
~beef hot dogs
