Thanksgiving is only a few day away. Most ski resorts are open. Your kids are home from school. Do you really wants to spend time cooking? 

Save that for Thanksgiving! This kid- (and holiday visitor) friendly recipe will give you more time to do the  things you really want to do. 

Like lay on the couch and read. ;)
