It's not Thanksgiving without...

Even the most adventurous eaters often give their inner food warrior the day off on Thanksgiving -- nothing but the same turkey, stuffing (or dressing!), cranberries, green bean casserole and pumpkin pie they've been eating since childhood. If one of those dishes goes missing, the whole meal just doesn't feel right.


Other families stray away from the standards -- some friends of ours have to have collard greens, whiskey sours and banana pudding for the day to feel right, while another family dives into duck -- and develop their own must-indulge traditions.


Your assignment -- in video or pictures, and as much text as you'd like, share the story of your must-have Thanksgiving dish. It could be a cherished family recipe, or something a schoolmate or fellow serviceman whipped up, and you simply must have on the table every year.
