We hosted Thanksgiving at our house this year for 14 adults and 2 kids. It was a tight fit but a successful evening with wonderful food. We were lucky to receive a Hickory Farms “Home for the Holidays” gift basket as part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program one week prior to the big day. The HUGE box of cheese, sausage, mustard and crackers was a perfect appetizer. After spending the day preparing turkey we really had no energy to make any extravagant starters so this really came in handy. All we had to do was open and plate. My favorite part was the lean, slightly peppery sausage dipped in the sweet honey pineapple mustard. I even had a little sausage sando the day after cause I’d had my fill of turkey leftovers.
You sometimes forget about Hickory Farms because they are not in the malls year round anymore but they are great gifts for friends and family during the holiday season. Check out their wide assortment of gift boxes here. Receiving this basket put a smile on my face. Thxs Hickory Farms!

** My Foodbuzz nominee for a holiday gift basket would be my sister. She is a mother of three kids all under age 5. She works full time as a teacher, is a super mom and really deserves a little surprise during the holidays! **
