Eight more days to go before Thanksgiving, but I feel like I’m running out of time to prepare for the big day. Although I’m not hosting this year’s Thanksgiving (my sister holds the flag this time), I have to bring some treats for the kids. My sister asked me to a week ago. She said she can’t do it all. Well, you’ve gotta help a sister. Anyway, have you decided what to serve on the table yet? I hope this roundup will help you choose what sweet treats you’ll place on the table.
