For the Food on Fridays carnival, any post remotely related to food is welcome—though we love to try new dishes, your post doesn’t have to be a recipe. We’re pretty relaxed over here, and stories and photos are as welcome as menus and recipes. When your Food on Fridays contribution is ready, just grab the broccoli button to paste at the top of your post. It ties us together visually. Then fill in the boxes of this linky tool to join the fun!
Food on Fridays with Ann
Sometimes, after a long, full day, we realize we don’t have time or energy to make dinner from scratch. That’s when we send everyone to the fridge for “Fend for Yourself” night. They dig around for leftovers and heat up a plate of whatever looks interesting.Do you think that might work for Thanksgiving?I could make the turkey, mashed potatoes, corn and pumpkin pie in advance, stick everything in the fridge, and then invite our guests to forage.Well, I don’t think I can get by with that for Thanksgiving Day, but I did hear an interesting idea from a friend of mine. She is going to make her turkey a day in advance, carve it, store it in the fridge covered in foil and sitting in broth, and then simply heat it up on Thanksgiving Day.Unconventional? Perhaps.Convenient? Definitely.And it sounds like the closest thing to Fend for Yourself I could get by with.Would you do it, if you were hosting?
