5 Last-Minute Tips for Planning the Most Epic Danksgiving Ever
If you’ve never hosted a Danksgiving before, you’re gonna want to start doing it every year after reading this blog.
Danksgiving represents all that is amazing about Thanksgiving, with a 420-friendly twist.
For Danksgiving, you shouldn’t worry about arbitrary traditions that don’t make sense to you. All you need to do is whip up a few cannabis-infused dishes and invite your favorite people over for a Danksgiving feast.
We don’t need to tell you about any recipes since you can find most of those online already.
But what we can offer you is priceless advice from people who care about you having your dankest Danksgiving yet.
1. The guest list – don’t stress this.
Look – A Danksgiving may have some similarities to a traditional Thanksgiving dinner, but it can be as traditional, or not, as you want it to be. That’s the beauty of it!
This means that your guest list doesn’t need to involve anyone that you don’t want to see.
Make it a friends-only dinner and leave certain judgmental family members out.
They can wait until the actual Thanksgiving to interrogate you about your life choices.
2. Elevate your food and celebrate your mood!
It’s 2018 ya’ll. You can cook weed into pretty much anything.
But if you’re looking for a quick and easy way to infuse your feast with cannabis, I have just one word for you. Butter.
Canna-butter is the foundation of almost all cannabis-infused meals, so making a stick of it to be used for anything (mixed into your mashed potatoes, spread on a dinner roll, smothered on some green beans… you get it) may be the easiest way to do it. That way, each of your guests can customize how high they want to get during this ever-festive Danksgiving.
Quick tip: Label how strong each serving of butter is for your guests. Also, have a stick of normal butter too, for your sober friends and designated drivers.
3. Sweats and tees, not dress and squeeze.
No one likes to pig out in their fancy clothes. Make it clear to your guests that the dress code should be aimed more for comfort, and that there’s no pressure to go super stylish.
Think of Danksgiving as Thanksgiving’s cooler, more casual, cousin. The formalities of Thanksgiving aren’t a thing when it comes to Danksgiving.
You’re gonna be in a living room, for crying out loud. You shouldn’t even feel pressured to wear shoes.
4. 420 A.D. (After Danksgiving)
Whatever you do after your Danksgiving feast is just as important as the dinner itself. Some people may trickle out, but the real ones will stick around.
The best way to entertain a bunch of high people who just ate their weight in cannabis-infused mashed potatoes is to put on some good ole’ fashioned Netflix.
Passing around a few pre-rolls and enjoying a movie is the perfect food coma smoke-a-thon after party that will put the cherry on top of the best Danksgiving yet.
5. Quick and fast Danksgiving cooking life hacks:
- A DIY roasting rack for roasting your turkey is easy to fashion out of tinfoil.
- Drizzle dried-out turkey with warm chicken broth to revitalize it and make it tender and juicy again.
- Slow roast your turkey overnight and give yourself extra oven space for the day of.
- Have enough weed for the day before and the day of. You’re gonna want to be stoned for all of this preparation.
- Use a cooler as a second fridge since your actual fridge will be full of delicious food (not the worst problem to have, when you think about it).
- Instead of scrubbing lots of potatoes, put them through the dishwasher instead. Don’t use soap!
Ultimately, Danksgiving is all about spending time with the people you love. And getting them really, really stoned.
Planning a Danksgiving should be just as fun as celebrating it, so try not to get too stressed out with all the planning, and just have some fun with it. This doesn’t have to be as extravagant or as formal as a traditional Thanksgiving. Heck, there doesn’t even have to be a turkey. Make it as traditional or as untraditional as you want. There are no rules!
But if there was one rule (there isn’t, but if there was…), here’s your only rule: If it’s stressing you out, don’t do it.
