Is Thanksgiving at Your House? – Do THIS

If you’re having a dinner or holiday party, send your guests home with leftovers, especially the ooey-gooey ones. Maybe you’re the host who is too busy tending to your party guests to take a moment and eat. What happens is that once they leave and you settle into the kitchen to clean up, the plate of brownies, cheese platter and cupcakes are quicker to land in your mouth than in a piece of sealed Tupperware.
