Thanksgiving is an all-day affair for most families! Right after breakfast and the parade everyone congregates at someone’s house. Football is played and watched, wine is poured, Thanksgiving appetizers are eaten while waiting for the feast, and even though most families have there own set of drama laughter usually fills the rooms.
In conclusion to my ramblings above the day starts way before the feast is served. I think that is why I believe a variety of simple delicious make-ahead Thanksgiving Appetizers and trays are so crucial. They set the tone and pave the way to the upcoming feast.
So, what are you going to make? Haven’t decided, no worries here are a few of our favorite Thanksgiving Appetizers!
