Despite the plentiful amount of recently published themed posts, Thanksgiving has snuck up on us again this year at the What's Cookin' office. This fabulous food holiday is now mere hours away. With the turkey set, the sides cooking and the family beginning to assemble, the enjoyable sentiment is headed our way, and so are the cravings.

While many feast on their turkeys during the afternoon or early evening, there is necessary snacking which takes place each year during the hours before dinner. Thanks especially to football game hunger and the wafting aromas of the day's final meal traveling through the house and up the noses of eager guests, there are recurring requests for food and innumerable inquiries about dinnertime.
