Host A Unique Potluck Thanksgiving
If you’re the ring leader of a turkey day gathering, you might try choosing a fun flavor theme to help guests choose a recipe to bring. For example, themes could be traditional, low-country, or as we’ve done here―Italian. Ask folks who shy away from cooking to bring wine, or crusty loaves of bread and olive oil for dipping.
Dine Outside On Turkey Day
Don’t pass up the chance to enjoy Thanksgiving supper outdoors if the weather is nice. Fill a big table with platters of turkey, breads, and salads. Part of the fun to this get-together is standing in line, plate in hand, waiting your turn to serve yourself. Settle around the outdoor tables and enjoy dinner.
