RECIPE OF THE WEEK
Ingredients:
1 large (16-18 lb.) turkey
2 lbs. stuffing
2 dozen yams or sweet potatoes
Brown gravy mix
Your mother-in-law
Your sister-in-law
Her husband, the slug
Their three kids who never shut up
Aunt Florence and Uncle Ray, who aren’t talking
Cousin Whit ("It")
Grandpa and his nurse, Melba
God-knows-who-else

While the turkey cooks at 375, your sister-in-law should complain that there aren’t enough chairs. Your four-year-old nephew Zack drops Grandpa’s hearing aid in the punch bowl as Uncle Ray goes outside to his car to listen to the ballgame on the radio, and weird cousin "It" performs the Heimlich maneuver on Junior, the 200-lb. Rotweiler who ate the turkey, the stuffing, the yams or sweet potatoes, and the gravy.
