Are you ready for Thanksgiving?  I am getting there.  I always seem to spend so much time thinking about the turkey, the side dishes, and the stuffing, that I give little thought to starters.  I am always looking for easy make-ahead Thanksgiving soups and appetizers that aren’t too filling.  Here are some of my favorites that are perfect for Thanksgiving day and will give you lots of time to spend Around the Family Table with friends and family….truly the most important part of the meal.

Happy Thanksgiving! Thanks for including my Asian marinated mushrooms! They were sooooo good…and light tasting. They didn’t get in the way of the dinner to come.
