5 Thanksgiving Day Snacks

Easy munchies to get you through the day


The day we have all been anxiously awaiting is finally upon us. Yes, tomorrow is Thanksgiving!

The turkey is set to be stuffed, the ingredients for  side dishes are on the counter, and we are ready and thankful for a day set aside for family, friends and lots of deliciousness.

Now that the main meal is ready for execution, it’s time to figure out what to have around the house as good (but not too filling) pre-dinner hors d’oeuvres. They key is to whip things up that are simple to make and won’t get in the way of all that is cooking for dinner.

Here are five tasty recipes that will keep your stomach from growling, but won’t fill you or your guests up before the big meal.

Rosemary Pecans

Crunchy snacks you can grab by the handful are always a hit at larger gatherings. These little munchies are jazzed up with one of our favorite holiday herbs, rosemary. With a hint of sweetness and just a touch of heat from cayenne pepper, these are good to go after just a quick roast in the oven.

    Lovely suggestions, but munching on these, we'll be totally stuffed when it's time for dinner! Will stick to carrot & celery sticks, I think. But thanks! ;-)
