The First Friendsgiving

This year, a good friend made the executive decision that our group of friends should have a FRIENDSGIVING – brilliant! 

If you’re planning on doing something special with your friends, and want to present everyone with an invitation, I created a basic template for you to use for your party. Just download, and fill it in with your event info.

Tips for a successful Friendsgiving:
  1. Grab some post-Halloween sale d├ęcor for the tables
  2. Start an email chain so guests don’t bring multiple dishes
  3. Use paper plates -- A MUST!
Things to remember for next year’s Friendsgiving:
  1. Defrost turkey the day before
  2. Have someone bring gravy
  3. Be cautious of oven space
I slightly modified Alton Brown’s chipotle smashed sweet potato recipe for my side dish. It’s got a little kick and only five ingredients, which is why I love it so much.

  • 4 large sweet potatoes
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2 T of butter
  • 2 chipotle peppers, plus 1 T adobe sauce (canned)
  • salt & pepper to taste
Step 1: Peel and cube sweet potatoes, and place in boiling water. Season water first with salt.
Step 2: Finely chop garlic cloves and chipotle peppers. I recommend taking the seeds out of your peppers because that's where the heat lives.
Step 3: Once potatoes are fork tender, mash them, and add in you butter.
Step 4: Incorporate all ingredients, and add the extra adobe sauce from the can.
