A crispy salad with some choice Lettuce would be a nice way to kick off the meal. Make it Iceberg. Normally we’re not picky, but Romaine seems to be having a tough time right now…

Of course, it isn’t Thanksgiving without turkey.

Maybe even have a lil “Meatstick,” courtesy of Phish…

Not saying you should judge, but if your host puts out a Meat Loaf, maybe you should get out of there like a “Bat Out of Hell“…

Or some good ol’ fashioned macaroni…

A dinner table wouldn’t be complete without a little Bread.
Bread – “Make It With You”
For those of you who like their carbs extra-crunchy, we have some (Disco) Biscuits for you while you’re “Home Again”. Perfect for the occasion!

Though I can’t imagine how, after dinner, you may still have a little room left for dessert. Maybe a slice of Cake?
