    I luv all of these options! The last couple of years my family has done a lot of ‘snacking’ during the holidays instead of having a full blown meal. We still eat of course, but never to the magnitude of like a thanksgiving spread because we always end up with too much leftovers. Plus it takes a lot of the cooking stress off of my mom. Great options! Thank u for sharing!
