4 Quick And Easy Thanksgiving Appetizers From Trader Joe’s


With Thanksgiving around the corner, we over here at Beijos have been giving you a ton of ideas, DIYs, tips, tablescapes; you name it to achieve the best turkey day possible. We showed you a yummy cocktail, how to make a pretty fall flower arrangement for your table, and today it’s all about the appetizers. No matter how much you prepare, it always seems your just rushing to get those served as your guests are arriving. There is no guilt in getting a little help, are you with me?! This year, I’m getting some help from one of my favorite grocery stores, Trader Joes. You can’t go wrong with anything from there. TJ’s is the ultimate best friend for Thanksgiving. 

Last Sunday, I used my “mommy” alone time and headed to Trader Joes.  I picked up my favorite tea from Starbies, and I was off with the mission to find five appetizers that would be fast and easy, but of course pretty, pretty, pretty! I’m sure you all know, but you have got to get to Trader Joe’s early, it just gets crazy there past 10 am. Grabbed my cart and hit the aisles. When doing anything food wise for Thanksgiving, I like to use what’s in the season for Fall. Essential Thanksgiving food like butternut squash, cranberries, pears, pomegranates, herbs like sage and thyme. 

Enough jibber jabber, let’s get to it!
