Appetizers aren't a traditional part of the Turkey Day line-up, but we think it's a good to give people something to snack on while the meal is coming together. What do you think?

When you come right down to it, Thanksgiving Dinner is really just a big dinner party. And in our opinion, dinner parties require appetizers - particularly if folks are having a glass of wine while they wait for dinner!

With a big meal like Thanksgiving, we don't want to spend a lot of time on fussy appetizers or make ones that would fill people up before dinner. We're thinking of setting out a few bowls of spiced toasted nuts or maybe a simple platter of cheese and crackers.

What other easy, light appetizers do you recommend?
