PREPARE FOR THE FEAST!

Planning your Thanksgiving Day wardrobe? Here are a few realistic suggestions to make the feast more comfortable:

1. Select adjustable clothing.

Elastic in the waistline is a must.

2. Use string tie belts instead of buckled belts.

Buckled belts may also be adjusted on the buckle end.

3. Before the BIG day, move buttons from articles of clothing to accommodate future flab.

Reattach them mid-February.

4. Nightgowns adjust to body changes better than pajamas.

However, they're not suitable for formal family dinners. Move the buttons.

5. JUST SAY WHOA!

GAME GAME

Kaplan's Turkey on the Web suggests this new "spin" on Thanksgiving . . . Spin the Turkey Game. The rules? The standard routine . . .

We suggest you participate in this sport while Tom is still frozen.

The object of the game: Rack up points before the li'l fella becomes dinner.

Kaplan's also explores this hot topic: Popcorn-Ball Turkeys and their Side Effects.

ARE YOU READY?

Have you designated your turkey-lifter yet? There's still time.

And for you non-turkey folk, who will cook your goose?

DRESS FOR SUCCESS

Do you stuff the bird or dress it? Both stuffing and dressing are well-seasoned blends of bread cubes (or cornbread pieces or rice) with any variety of flavorful additions.

However, stuffing bakes inside the bird, while dressing is baked alongside in a pan.

In the East and South, "dressing" is the preferred term, no matter how the dish is prepared.
