I have to admit I am not much of a cook; thankfully however my husband is. Matter of fact, his cooking is so AMAZING that in five years of marriage our house has become the de facto holiday hangout and preferred venue for dinners parties in general.
Since my personal culinary experience has more to do with consuming then creating; I have had to find activities to amuse myself while my husband spends countless hours perfecting recipes. My main form of amusement is to play “Martha” which includes setting the table and creating party favors or goodie bags.
Since my husband’s cooking is so scrumptious the last several Thanksgivings I have made personalized “doggie bags” which seem to be a big hit because let’s face it, leftovers is what Thanksgiving is all about.
Here is what you will need:
- Place cards
- Hole punch
- Cooking twine
- Take out container
Basically after dinner is complete I create a doggie bag for each guest. I reuse the place cards by punching them with a decorative hole punch and then I use cooking twine to tie it all together. It is really simple and everyone loves the leftovers especially since they didn’t have to spend all day in the kitchen to get them.
