Alright, I’m gunna be real right up front here. Our friendsgiving looked nothing like that beautiful photo at the top that my mother took. Ours involved a lot space heaters and lawnmowers, IT HAD CHARACTER.
However, it was a perfect friendsgiving. If you’re lost, let me help you. Friendsgiving is what you wish your real thanksgiving was. Instead of sitting around your grandmas plastic covered table to eat dinner at 7:30 in the morning while listening to your weird uncle talk about gun control and Ronald Reagan, you get to be with your FRIENDS.
Everyone gets assigned a dish to bring and you roll up to someones house with your arms full of hot dishes, like those black Friday commercials when the moms roll out of the mini-van in slow motion, and you get down.
I love very few things. Italian food is one of them. I try at least once a week to get my family to eat a variation of pasta, call it whatever you want, but its still just noodles and red sauce. I NEED IT. Today we made chicken parmesan, but in a sandwich form, and it was amazing.
You’re going to start with your regular chicken parm ingredients. Some bread crumbs of your choosing (we used Italian panko and regular bread crumbs), add a ton of parmesan cheese to your bread crumbs, THAT is the key to a bangin chicken parm.
Today I ventured out about forty-five minutes to a local winery with my parents and my best friend. Let me tell you, wineries are the shit. Not only are they instagram perfect, you just buy bottles of wine and wander around with them. They also offer food along with their endless wine, and a self guided tour. Self guided tours are the best tours because even if I don’t know what I’m talking about, I’d rather hear it from myself than Rachel the enthusiastic tour guide.
