Hello Friends, Happy Thanksgiving Week!!!! It’s three days until the all you can eat holiday, I hope you have your menu planned and your groceries bought and at this point maybe your table is set and decorated. Today we are going to keep on with a tradition of looking at Holiday Cocktails and looking at some yummy and fun concoctions for you and your guests to enjoy before, during, and after the big meal, a couple of them could even be dessert. I hope you’re NOT stressing too bad and remember to breathe and make those lists so you don’t forget anything. Have a great day and I’ll see you back here tomorrow. Enjoy!!!
