Thanksgiving Baking Party with Great Value

by Jenn @ Frugal Upstate on November 20, 2012

A week or so ago I told you about some easy and elegant ways to use up Thanksgiving leftovers using Great Value brand crescent rolls, biscuits and pie crust:

I also told you that I’d be having some friends over for a little “show and tell” type baking party. Well I did, and we had a blast!

I showed the gals how to make all three of the dishes.  Everyone got to try everything, we ate some of the crescent wreath for lunch, and everyone went home with a box of Pie Bites and Pierogie Biscuits.

It’s funny, whenever I do something like this I realize how much fun I have with my friends and how much we all enjoy learning new things.  If I didn’t have to blog about it, I might never have gotten around to hosting a get together like this.  The old adage “many hands make light work” is true-and when you bake with friends you are not only sharing the work, you are also cementing and building your friendships and sharing skills.

And I’ll let you in on a little secret.  The house wasn’t perfectly clean.  There were baskets of unfolded laundry in my husband’s study.  We had to move a few piles around on the dining room table to make room to sit down to eat.  And although I got the kitchen and dining room swept, I didn’t get the living room vacuumed.  You know what? It didn’t matter.  We all had a good time anyway.  Don’t let the fact that things aren’t “perfect” keep you from enjoying your friends!

I agree having friends over is amazing. I too wonder why I don’t do it more often. And your comment about a perfectly clean house being unnecessary is spot on. It awakened a plan to have a small Christmas party. Want to come? :)
