Who needs Thanksgiving when you can have a Friendsgiving!


Let's try out some of the great holiday recipes that just came out from Food & Wine and celebrate the holidays in style!  Please sign up in the comments which one of the below recipes you'd like to bring. 


Also, in the spirit of giving, everyone should bring two of their favorite all time recipes (anything you love to make) written out on index cards for a Recipe Swap!  We'll pick out new recipes in White Elephant style so everyone goes home with something new to try. :)


Don't forget to bring something to serve your dish with and a beverage if you would like one.  Cooking Club will provide all utensils and plates.  See you then!
