Last year, I hosted Thanksgiving and did all the cooking. It's probably why I don't have one single photo from last Thanksgiving! Haha. I love hosting parties, so doing all the cooking was enjoyable. This year however, we are traveling to my husband's Aunt and Uncle's house in Albany for Thanksgiving. Since it's a 3 hour drive North, I decided not to cook anything but rather to bring some easy appetizers and dessert. We order a pecan pie from Mother Mousse bakery, and I'm doing a crudite platter. Too bad we don't have any of our own vegetables growing in the garden to add to the crudite platter. I also wanted to do a cheese and crackers platter so I headed to Trader Joe's, where they have an amazing selection of cheese for an amazing price.
