I Think I'm Going NUTS!!!!

The weather is getting colder and I'm getting more and more into the Holiday spirit. We're having some friends and neighbors over early the week of Thanksgiving and I want to have some easy snacks available that are seasonal, yet not an early edition of their Thanksgiving Day dinner. I never understood why companies always had their big holiday meal on Wednesday the day before Thanksgiving and it was always turkey and dressing, ham and all the trimmings. I don't want to spoil the anticipation of that first bite, so no rehearsals here.



So, I thought nuts, pecans (pe-caan, pea-can,) would be a good choice. Now I know pecan pie is probably a big part of the dessert table on Thanksgiving, but I'm talking "Savory" nuts here. These are a couple of my favorite appetizers. I hope you get a chance to try them and that you enjoy them as much as we do here in the "Schmidt House."
