Happy Sunday, friends!

Can you believe we are a month into fall? Where does the time go? 
As we approach the holiday season I’m already plotting what to make for the greatest gathering. I’m talking about a little situation called Friendsgiving. Maybe you’ve heard of it? 

Each year our Denver Village gathers for an epic day of flag football, wine consuming, turkey frying and the chance to celebrate our friendship. Friendsgiving is one of favorite days not only because it brings us all together, but celebrating with food with the people you love in a casual, relaxed environment is the best! 

Now the key to celebrating Friendsgiving is the menu. The village divides and conquers when it comes to preparing dishes. This year I am planning on bringing two: 1) Sweet Potato Hummus with Harvest Greens and 2) Moroccan Cauliflower Bake (which I will be sharing tomorrow so stay tuned!)

Each dish is a fantastic addition to the Friendsgiving menu. For the sweet potato hummus with harvest greens I wanted something super simple to serve as a side that would also taste like fall. I think I nailed it with this dish. Sweet potato hummus is luxurious with a touch of cinnamon and the harvest greens are tossed with a maple vinaigrette. Put this plate full of goodness out on the buffet table and watch it disappear. 

With that, if you are looking to host a Friendsgiving this year, my friends over at Sabra want to help you bring your friends together for an unforgettable Friendsgiving.

Definitely check out their Pinterest board for recipes, decor ideas and more inspiration here: https://www.pinterest.com/sabradips/friendsgiving/]  It’s a good way to mix things up and start a new tradition with flavor and fun. 

So welcome your friends, pull up a seat, and join us, because this Friendsgiving is going to be a Friendsgiving For All.
