  • Don't Show Up Empty Handed! Last-Minute Ideas for Thanksgiving Dinner

    Thanksgiving is one of the best holidays of the year when it comes to grubbing, and it leaves our stomachs growling all day long. Of course, some of us have to work during the early hours of Thanksgiving, some of us have kids, and some of us just don't know how to cook, which leaves little room for bringing a hot dish to contribute to the meal. On the other hand, you can't just show up empty handed. If you don't want it to be completely obvious that you stopped at the grocery store on the way to dinner – which you don't want to do anyway, it's going to be packed – here are a few solutions that are just as quick and easy.

    Apple Cider Mimosas

    Who doesn't love a fresh, sweet cup of apple cider in the fall? It's good all on its own or warmed up with some cinnamon, but if you happened to purchase a jug last time you were at the grocery store, you've got half the ingredients for a delicious Thanksgiving treat (for the adults). Just like you'd make a standard mimosa by putting a little orange juice in your champagne, do the same thing – but with cider! Apple cider mimosas are bubbly, tasty, easy, and perfect for making a toast after everyone says what they're thankful for.

    Chocolate Gift Basket

    Pre-Ordered Sweet Treats

    If you know you're not going to have time to run to the store, why not bring something easy that doesn't require leaving your desk? Chocolate gift baskets are delivered right to your door – provided you've been thinking ahead – and look beautiful. They're decorative, so they make a great gift to the host, and have so many selections of chocolate, your guests will be noshing on it all night.

    No-Bake Eggnog Pie

    If you feel you need to show up with something homemade and unique, but baking isn't necessarily your forte, why not go for something no-bake? Four easy ingredients and you've got yourself a delicious pie filling, which you can pour into a store-bought pie crust or make one from scratch with crumbled graham crackers and butter. Just combine a quart of eggnog with two packets of vanilla instant pudding mix and sprinkle in some cinnamon and nutmeg. It's sure to be something your guests have never had before – but beware, they'll ask you to bring it every year from now on!
