Q: I love to cook, but unfortunately I'm not a huge fan of the Thanksgiving food my mom cooks.
What's a simple, seasonal meal I can make a day or two in advance of the big day so I won't get in her way Thanksgiving morning by preparing food for myself?

Editor: Elizabeth, if you are looking for seasonal dishes to add to the Thanksgiving table, what about one of these? I love kale salad on Thanksgiving; it's festive and fresh, and complements everything else. Also, a soup is always a nice touch. Each of these lasts well for a few days in the fridge, too.
