The Gooey Gobbler – A Perfect Way to Use Your Thanksgiving Leftovers

And so the most jam-packed week of my life is underway and I’ve got to say — so far, so good! After just getting back from a fun-filled wedding weekend in Tallahassee with all of my best friends, to coming home for 24 hours and cooking at Black Dolphin Inn, to then quickly jetting to NYC, it seems as if Thanksgiving is the light (somewhat) at the end of the tunnel.

What’s not to love? Friends, family, and delicious food is right around the corner and for that, I’m super, SUPER grateful! Oh and total humble brag here but I need to mention it since I won’t be posting next week. I’m also grateful that my entire family is heading to Italy on Saturday for our first family trip in almost 7 years since we opened BDI… but that’s another story which you will be seeing a lot of if you follow me on instagram!

Juno’s a Lil Beyotch: A Turkey Reuben Sandwich

turkey rueben

So booooo! Major yawn over here… Juno was sooooo not exciting in Brooklyn. I mean it’s pretty freaking cold up in here and nothing is opened at all so that sucks but I’m stoked that we never lost power and I didn’t have to resort to using all the weird-o voodoo candles I bought at the dollar store down the street. But I’ll make this short because I’m gonna go out and play in the snow for a bit but I’ve got a special sandwich that will keep you warm and cozy even though it’s a winter wonderland up in this shit. CUE TURKEY REUBEN!

Super Bowl Party with my Farm Rich Buddies

If you know anything about me, you know that I couldn’t care less about the world of sports. And it’s not because I despise watching hunks toss around the pigskin or anything like that (because let’s be real – that’s hot) but I honestly don’t even look towards the TV because there are far more important things to worry about. Like what, you ask? Like creating a super boss spread for all your friends to gather around while the game is on! And yeah, don’t get me wrong, I like the standard dip-centered parties just as much the next gal, but seriously dudes, enough of the same old thing – let’s get creative here with our party spreads! So this year, instead of putting out the simple guac and chips, let’s do something fun and exciting…. Like say, this here MEATBALL PARTY!

So for this party, you can either create the spread yourself or you can ask your buds to bring over a few surprise ingredients like crazy condiments, cheeses, and breads and watch the fun unravel before your very eyes! For my big day, I focused the party around Farm Rich’s turkey meatballs because not only are they super tasty but they’re also totally easy to prepare. They take ALL the prep-work out of packin’ meatballs and I couldn’t be more thankful for that.  Along with the pre-cooked Farm Rich turkey meatballs, I laid out a bunch of random things that I thought would complement the meat. There was cooked spaghetti, pesto, marinara, yellow curry, cherry peppers, banana peppers, basil, parmesan, cheddar, mozzarella, capers, roasted peppers, baguettes, rolls, sliced bread, and of course, a ton of butter!

After I presented the gorgeous spread, I handed out plates and let everyone use their creative juices to make something that was personalized and unique for them. I also set up the panini press because I knew that my friends would expect some grilled cheese goodness from me. So now, it’s time for me to show you some of my favorite creations.

And if meatballs aren’t your thing, then I totes recommend that you stock up on Farm Rich FRIED chicken (!!!) bites.  Aren’t they oh so cute and pretty?

So not only is this Super Bowl spread super easy and fun but anyone can do it and it’s also very interactive so your guests can customize their meal while getting to chow down.

XOXO,
