Come Party With Me: Classic Thanksgiving — Menu (Appetizers)

One dish that's easily overlooked at Thanksgiving is the appetizers. Some people find them unnecessary, but with all the fragrant aromas coming from the kitchen, it's important to offer guests something to snack on while the turkey cooks. Keep it easy, don't experiment with new, difficult recipes. Fill bowls with nuts, olives, and dried fruits. Set out an assortment of crackers and flatbreads. Serve these with a nut crusted baked brie. The brie can be prepared in advanced and quickly baked while the guests arrive. Sound scrumptious? Get the recipe when you
