Turkey Trots 2016

FROM Tom & Cindy

By now, you most likely have your Thanksgiving plans in place. If you are cooking and starting to panic because you aren’t as ready as you’d like, check out our Last Minute Thanksgiving Dinner Guide!

If you are like most people, Thanksgiving can be a day of indulgence. From the appetizers, turkey, delicious side dishes like sweet potato and green bean casseroles, wine and scrumptious pies for dessert, you can really pack on the calories in just one meal!
