Thanksgiving is just around the corner! The agents at Keller Williams Dallas Metro North reminisced about favorite Thanksgivings recently. They told stories that made my mouth water: stories about favorite appetizers served with love and football, about sumptuous Thanksgiving dinners with mom’s favorite dressing, and glorious pumpkin pie for dessert … with homemade whipped cream, of course! Yummm!
