A Fauxgiving Gathering

I hope everyone is having a smooth start to their week after a long holiday weekend! I’m thankful for such an awesome family to spend my holidays with. A couple weeks ago, we had a small gathering at Breanna + Michael’s house since they were going to be out of town for actual Thanksgiving. We called it our fauxgiving, since we wanted to still celebrate the holiday together, even though it was the week before.

We wanted to keep the menu in the thanksgiving theme but also keep it light and fresh. We ended up having chicken with a lemon sauce, sauteed fresh green beans, roasted potatoes ( of all kinds and colors to go with the thanksgiving theme! ), salad, and a mini baguette at each table spot. Yum, I’m hungry just thinking about all the goodies we ate that night.
