Ground Rules

  • Including Food and Beverages
  • Don’t have to nominate a specific recipe, however mentioning can support your argument
  • Acknowledge that one person’s Thanksgiving meal might be different than another. As long as its food that they have during Thanksgiving then it’s fair game to nominate.
  • Topping or sauces are separate nominations.
  • Making the food is not part of the consideration. We are more trying to think about if it’s something we would want to eat.
  • Each food nominated is nominated as if it is in the best prepared state. (ie: the perfect way to cook a Turkey)
