THANKSGIVING DESSERTS: #FNIchat (Foodies’ Night In) 11.19.12
We’ve covered stuffing. We’ve covered turkey. And now, in one last #FNIchat before the biggest feast of the year, we’re about to cover dessert. Prepare to take a pumpkin pie straight to the face because THIS Monday we’re talking about the sweetest part of Thanksgiving supper.
Come hungry to dig deep into crust and filling and whipped cream on top. Together we’ll serve up sweet holiday classics, lighter treats, and regional favorites. On this Monday we’ll eat dessert first, and get back to talking turkey on Tuesday. Join us.

How Foodies’ Night In Works:.
Late Monday afternoons (4-6pm eastern to be exact) we meet through Twitter. Using the hashtag #FNIchat we greet each other at the virtual door, and get cozy to talk about whatever food-related topic we are featuring that day. Typically the topic will be determined by the weekly sponsor of #FNIchat. We, at Cooking with Caitlin, compile at least ten questions that serve as the framework of the conversation over the two hours of #FNIchat. Then, the hosts throw out each question at pre-determined times throughout #FNIchat. We hope that YOU will join in the fun-filled foodie conversation and share your thoughts, recipes, tips, ask questions…and most certainly make new friends! Can’t wait to *see* you there.
And HERE are the questions that framed the exchange. Dig in yourself and let us know what you think:
