University communities are great places for sumptuous Thanksgiving dinners. When our son moved to AZ for grad school, the "orphans" gathered. I believe the 'basics' were turkey, dressing, gravy. He roasts the turkey and makes the dressing. Each guest was asked to bring *the* dish that made Thanksgiving for them. Southern Dough brought cornbread dressing, someone else brought The Green Bean Casserole, someone else. . . you get the gist. Gourmet standards are not required and they have discovered that the important part is in the gathering together for a good meal and lots of laughs.

The easiest to prepare. . . and that big ol' bird can be so daunting to a new cook. I remember those days and the terror that would set in at the thought that it might not turn out right. It's such a big piece of meat!! Fortunately, I've never bungled the bird but I still remember the fear I felt the first couple times I roasted a birdy.

So glad to see someone finally take this perspective! For each of the last 10+ years, I've hosted Thanksgiving for 50 - 60 people (occasionally up to 70+) and I still say its the easiest holiday to host. I do everything the day before, sleep in the morning of and have 3 days to clean up. Plus, no expectations from the guests - feed 'em, give 'em a beverage and set 'em in front of the TV. Done.
