Thanksgiving is the holiday famous for family gatherings (awkward conversations) and loads, heaps, plates, and platters of food. While Grandma bakes her sweet and spiced pumpkin pie, your aunt begins fixing her first bloody mary. You mentally prepare for a lengthy interrogation from your nosy uncle, and Mom gives the turkey an herby massage while Dad looks a bit jealous…
