How To Add Weed To Your Friendsgiving Celebration

However you do it, have a great time with your friends and remember it is all about being together with those you chose this Thanksgiving

It has been all the rage since the early 2000s and a chance to spend tend to the choose close people over family. Friendsgiving is a blend of friends and Thanksgiving, and it refers the large meal eaten with friends either on or near Thanksgiving. It is a thing and people are serious how-tos, sample menus, new traditions, and games.  So how to add weed to your Friendsgiving celebration?

Unlike the family events that require you to “forget something in your car” with your favorite cousin, at Friendsgiving (in states where cannabis is recreationally legal), you can celebrate freely with your friends. Here are some tips.

Infuse Your Feast

Introducing weed to your meal is easy, since so much of the flavor (and THC) is fat-soluble, the butter-heavy meal is a great way to infuse cannabis if you want a group experience.

While infused butter is an easy go-to for guests to make any dish 420 friendly, you might want to consider exempting main courses due to people overindulging. You can do a smaller version so people can do a taste test.

Cooking Tips to Keep You Sane

Chef Justin Khanna has worked in some of the top restaurants in the world and now advises food-tech startups, hosts pop-up dinners and publishes educational content. Here he offers some basic tips for your feast:

  • Don’t get overwhelmed.  Making a prep list is the easiest way to avoid feeling scattered. Think about it: this is probably one of the biggest meals of your year, you should treat it differently than a standard dinner party with friends! Making a quick checklist of the dishes you’re preparing can help make sure components don’t go missing and also give you a great sense of how to answer when your guests come over and ask, “what can I help with?”
  • Don’t go it alone. Speaking of asking for help, this ends up being a huge win of having your friends be your guests. It’s not about grandma making the entire meal (that was my Thanksgiving tradition), so spread the load. Ask folks what they’re comfortable making or bringing, and use that opportunity to build out the meal. It’s way easier to know that someone else has the turkey covered, and you can use your oven for other projects throughout the day.
  • Don’t forget snacks. Let’s face it, your guests are going to arrive hungry. This doesn’t have to be anything elaborate, but offering some nibbles on arrival can be a phenomenal way to give yourself “buffer time” on serving the big meal. Considering folks probably want to catch up (or get to know one another on a first meet), offer up a charcuterie or butter board, crudités and dips, or even a baked cheese appetizer as a way to let everyone settle in without getting hangry.

However you do it, have a great time with your friends and remember it is all about being together with those you chose this Thanksgiving.
