This is an item even a person who fears the kitchen can make.
So you get that call early next week from the host of your Thanksgiving dinner (maybe it's your mother, grandmother, a friend or even somebody you barely know), and the person tells you in so many words that this meal isn't free. You don't have to pay for the food, but you must contribute to the meal. "Uh-oh! I can barely handle microwaving a Hot Pocket," you think to yourself. What do you do? Do not just go to the store and buy a box of instant mashed potatoes. Trust me, they'll notice. But don't freak out, not all recipes are complex. It is possible for those whose cooking experience is limited to stirring ramen noodles to contribute a tasty food item to the Thanksgiving meal. The following recipe for cranberry sauce is from my mother …

The Black Knights football team traveled to Canton and beat the Bulldogs for the seventh consecutive year on Thanksgiving.
Stoughton junior Aaron Mack had four touchdowns and the Black Knight defense turned in one of its best efforts of the season as the Stoughton High football team beat Canton 27-7 on the road Thanksgiving morning. The win marked Stoughton’s seventh straight Thanksgiving victory over Canton and the 15th in the last 17 years. During this current seven-year win streak, which dates back to 2005, Stoughton has outscored Canton 229-35. Unfortunately for Stoughton, Sharon fell to Oliver Ames 34-8 in Sharon.
