  1. You’ve done a great job with these.

    I would change # 10 to “turkey dressing”.

    I think # 7 is just “corn”.

    Might # 9 be “bass” as in the fish? Doesn’t seem like thanksgiving food though.

    # 8 and #16 totally elude me but I will edit if I think of anything. Good puzzle, though.

  2. 4. Collard greens

    10. Sliced turkey

  3. 4 is Fruit Salad on money

    5 is Tomato

    7 is Corn

    8 is Hot potato

  4. Chathuringmes is a kind of worm and the correct answer. Doctors hate parasites, fishermen use them for bait, and kids love gummy worms.

  5. 8. might be a hot potato.

    16. could be apple pie order.

  6. i have this paper for school, no. 1 might be berry as well…

  7. 7. might be corn(bread?).
