There’s no rule that says you have to prepare the entire Thanksgiving meal yourself, so delegate! Ask guests to bring a favorite dish – especially one that’s a tradition in their family. Most guests enjoy contributing to the celebration beyond bringing a bottle of wine, so take advantage of their willingness to help by enlisting guests to bring an appetizer, side dish, or dessert.
