Happy Thanksgiving!

Here's this week's NPR Sunday Puzzle:
This week's Thanksgiving challenge comes from listener Dan Pitt of Palo Alto, Calif. It's not very hard. The following three Thanksgiving dishes have something very unusual in common:
  • Spit-roast turkey
  • Cornbread stuffing
  • Boiled squash
What is it they have in common, and can you name one other thing that might be served at Thanksgiving dinner that has the same property?
Easy-peasy. Here's what we're bringing to the feast: I'm bringing the conventional answer: BRAISED SPROUTS. Henry's bringing ULTRA-VIOLET CAULIFLOWER, and Ross is bringing GUINEA-FOWL cooked with ANDOUILLE in PEANUT OIL and, for dessert, PUMPKIN CAKE-POPS.

What did you bring?

I searched on Flickr for FEAST and got...insects and zombies and injured footballers. None of which I selected for my photo array. Instead you get this:

Encinitas, California, USA

St. Alban's Feast Day

Endless feast for the eyes - HFF

Our tie-break rule:   In the event that a single round number is announced with a qualifier such as "about" or "around" (e.g., "We received around 1,200 entries."), the prize goes to the person who picked the range that includes that specific number.
