Thanksgiving Playlist: Tunes To Get You Through Cooking A Whole Meal

It's Thanksgiving morning and you've probably just embarked on what will be a marathon day of chopping, slicing, stuffing and basking until the sweet smells of roasted turkey (or tofurkey) float through your abode. It can be a daunting project, often taking three to five hours to create the perfect spread of mashed potatoes, green beans, yams and every other delicious side dish you can imagine.
