15 Friends-Giving Side Dishes to Wow a Crowd

Hello friends and happy Wednesday.

Who doesn’t love a good Friends-Giving potluck? This reinvented tradition is special around this time of year for friends that are too far away to travel home, or for friends that have lost family.

The thought of people being alone on Thanksgiving breaks my heart, so if your opening up your table your opening up your heart, and making someone a part of your holiday.

The idea of a Friends-giving potluck is so much less work than trying to tackle a big-ole bird and 4-5 side dishes on your own so if your friends bring the sides you can have a stress free day that everyone participates in.

Check out these tasty Friends-Giving side dishes.
