I hope everyone had a great, conversation and turkey-filled Thanksgiving! Matt and I are currently sitting on our new couch [finally!] recovering from a delicious night.
For the second year in a row, Matt and I celebrated Friends-giving, since both of our families are far away! For Friends-giving, each person brings a couple of different dishes to take the load off of the host and add some of their favorite dishes from home. Matt and I brought appetizers and Matt’s infamous scotcheroos. We made mini-caprese, pumpkin dip, and a pistachio-cranberry goat cheese log. All were really delicious and I recommend them for any holiday occasion/party! In addition to stuffing ourselves, an intense game of RISK went down, with the winner TBD! Our extra naughty puppy also joined us for the celebration.
Friendsgiving was actually Matt’s second Thanksgiving dinner. AngelPoints, the company Matt works for, had an amazing Thanksgiving dinner on Tuesday with loads of leftovers that even I got to enjoy! He also brought scotcheroos to this party, but his main feat was to concoct a turkey-inspired cocktail. I can’t imagine ingesting this beverage, but Matt said that the office really enjoyed it!
Without further ado, I present to you mixologist Matt’s finest beverage:
- turkey stock
- garnished with a turkey olive
Per Matt, mix the first three ingredients together in a martini shaker. Pour & garnish with piece of the turkey wrapped around a pimento.
