The Thanksgiving countdown clock is about to tick its last. Well-prepared cooks are reviewing their multi-page checklists, coordinating the things they did days in advance with the remaining few tasks. OK, great for them, but what about the rest of us, who are just now realizing that the food-to-guest ratio is somehow off, or that the menu has nothing for the dairy-free, gluten-free, nut-allergic girlfriend Cousin Charlie is bringing?

Or maybe the dawning realization is that the Thanksgiving dinner you’re invited to is actually a potluck. Is the expectation that you show up not just with a smile but with a hot dish?
