When you're hosting Thanksgiving—and I mean Thanksgiving, not Friendsgiving, where everyone is loosey-goosey with what's going to be served (Guacamole? Sure! Chicken instead of turkey? Great, who cares, let's get drunk and play Cards Against Humanity!)—things are INTENSE.
You're dealing with your parents and your in-laws and assorted elderly relatives who have been eating X casserole for 40 years and even though it tastes and looks like slop you have to make it because they will throw a FIT if you don't.
So, you spend the whole time leading up to the big day worrying about whether or not you're going to have all of the things everyone wants and also whether you're going to have enough of it. This, of course, is ridiculous. Has anyone ever run out of food on Thanksgiving? It's a ludicrous fear. There's always so much extra that it feels like a burden. But we fear it anyway.
This Make More Pie Plate ($22, Bourbon & Boots) plays right into those fears. An empty plate with a very direct demand/threat, with a gun included for extra emphasis. Buy two pies this year. No, three. Hell, just get four. You don't want to run out.
