Cranberry sorbet + ?

I'm making a little bit of cranberry sorbet (possibly with port) tomorrow as a palate cleanser and need suggestions for completing the dish-- maybe a complementary flavor of sorbet, a little savory cookie, or something else? [more inside]

Gluten-free Thanksgiving.

Gluten-free Thanksgiving. My youngest sister was diagnosed with Celiac disease at the beginning of this year. She will be coming home for Thanksgiving and I'd like to make some gluten-free dishes for our family pot-luck style dinner. The interweb is chock-full of gluten-free recipes, but I don't know which ones are good and which are just meh. Please share your favorite gluten-free Thanksgiving-y recipes! [more inside]

Kosher substitute for salt pork

Kosher substitute for salt pork? We want to make an America's Test Kichen recipe for Thanksgiving turkey. It calls for salt pork to be laid along the back of the turkey during the first part of the roasting process (with the breast-side down), like so. ATK says this is called "barding" the turkey, which they say makes the bird "self-basting." [more inside]

Drive time: CT to DC?

How long would the drive from New Haven to Washington, D.C., take on Wednesday evening? I'm trying to decide how horrendous the experience will be so I can judge whether springing for Amtrack tickets would be worth it. We'll be leaving at about 6 from New Haven. Specific experiences with that drive or a similar one before Thanksgiving would be appreciated.

Giving extra? Thanks!

Last year, the Secretary of the Army and many (most?) other federal bigwigs granted employees four hours of what amounted to admin leave on the day before Thanksgiving.

Mashed yams and Tim Tams?

"American Thanksgiving" in Melbourne, Australia -- for a few Americans and a bunch of new Aussie friends who have never celebrated, but want to help with the cooking. How should I use the next few days to prepare? A few of the difficulties: I've never hosted Thanksgiving before, in ANY country. I'm not sure how to best coordinate the pot-luck aspect -- trying to shape a decent team-effort menu would be wise. I'm not even sure where the best place is to buy a turkey. Bonus points for menu suggestions that add Aussie flair to the American holiday (let's put kangaroo in SOMETHING), or that go over-the-top American (who says we can't have turkey AND bacon cheeseburgers?).
