Friendsgiving #4 2017

We hosted our 4th Friendsgiving.  This year the others seemed busy so the meal was made here, and folks brought cheeses, crackers, and wine (3 types of cheese and Milton's yummy crackers), freshly made olive bread with an assortment of oil and vinegar to dig it in, and delicious pumpkin chip cookies. Also special beers were shared.

Vegetable Tray from Store
Spicy Kale
Roasted Beets and Sweet Potato and Yams
Baked Beans
Dessert: Marie Calendar Pies (Double Cream Lemon and Dutch Apple)

Afterwards we played a board game Secret Hitler.


1.  Tri-Tip - purchased at Costco it came pre-spiced.  Just put it on a grate on a tray and baked.  Served with horseradish sauce.  Delicious.  We bought two packages of meat and didn't even finish the first one  so we way over bought this!

2.  Spicy Kale - http://allrecipes.com/recipe/169777/chili-roasted-kale/

Delicious - had to be timed so it was the last thing out of the oven though...

Recipe By:SJRJA
"This recipe was adapted from one of my favorite methods of preparing broccoli and cauliflower - roasting at high heat with the bold flavor of chili powder. The result with kale is a little outrageous - fiery flavor with a unique crispy texture!"


  • 4 cups kale, washed and stems removed
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt


  1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Place the kale into a large mixing bowl, and drizzle with the olive oil. Toss until evenly coated, then sprinkle with the chili powder and kosher salt, and toss again. Spread the seasoned kale onto a baking sheet.
  3. Roast in the preheated oven for 5 minutes, then stir the kale, and continue roasting until the edges become brown and a little crispy, 5 to 8 minutes. Serve immediately.
