Thanksgiving Meals–Disaster Stories

Meals that don’t work for some reason can be humiliating, infuriating, and just downright frustrating at the time, but they tend to make for good stories later on. Many first-time cooks tell of leaving in the bundle of giblets and livers stored inside the store-bought turkey, or of failing to thaw or roast it the required amount of time. Or the time the family dog pulled off a drumstick. Or Dad dropped it on the kitchen floor but was able to reassemble it before placing it on the dining room table.
