Thanksgiving Serving Tips

Thanksgiving Tip: Use Food as Serveware

When planning a dinner as momentous as Thanksgiving, there are lots of elements to consider on top of cooking, like selecting the right menu (and bird!), detailing an oven plan, and considering your budget. But one thing I firmly believe you shouldn't have to stress about is doing the dishes.

Spare yourself — and the environment! — by using food as a serving vehicle whenever possible. Start off cocktail hour with cider poured in apple cups and homemade dip in a bread bowl. Or, if soup is part of your meal, offer it in festive roasted acorn squash. Not only is this serving method a fun surprise for guests, but it's also delicious, filling, compostable, and easy on the cleanup.

What serving tips do you have to cut down on the dishes at Thanksgiving?

Yeah, I don't see how that would save you any work; it's less work to wash a bowl than to make a fancy squash tureen.

Be real... all of those things will be set on dishes anyhow.

I agree with Lauren, it's exactly what I was going to say. You might be cutting down on the dish washing, but how much more effort will it be? How hard is it to put the dishes in the dishwasher? Although it does look lovely.

As much as I love roasted acorn squash this looks like way more work then it's worth if you have a big crowd coming over.
