this weekend was full of friends + food...so basically lots of goooood things.
on friday night i hosted a pinterest potluck with a few of my favorite chicago bloggers (shari, zoe, lara + leslie) and it was fantastic! i got to try new savory + sweet treats and chat it up with the girls...im tempted to try to make this a monthly thing. i made cake batter rice krispee treats but my favorite dish was shari's greek dip (i was thrilled to have leftovers the next day!) Saturday i was pretty productive at home-- i did lots of cleaning, laundry and prepping for friends-thanksgiving on sunday. we went out for greek sat night opa. i can always go for gryos and greek chicken lemon soup!
sunday was the big holiday! we had 8 guests (and somehow everyone had a place to sit!) our friends brought a dish (or two) so we had quite the feast. i was in charge of the turkey + pumpkin pie... after a little online research earlier in the week i realized that i had to thaw said frozen turkey a couple days before dinner. #fail. so plan B: we served three rotisserie chickens and they were delicious :) i am incredibly grateful to have such wonderful friends and my man helping out in the kitchen. let the countdown to thanksgiving2 begin!
how was your weekend? do you ever celebrate the holidays early?
ps in the spirit of the holidays, see what i am thankful for over on breakfast at toast!
