“Pull up a chair. Take a taste. Come join us. Life is so endlessly delicious.”
― Ruth Reichl


Mr. Weasley has been walking around the Ministry telling anyone who will listen about American Thanksgiving. He's finally convinced Molly to cook a big traditional dinner for the whole family, and he won't shut up about the joys of roast turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, pie, and all the trimmings. He's made it sound so delicious, in fact, that several of his co-workers would like to have their own feast. Unfortunately, the Ministry of Magic can't close down on a Thursday to celebrate a foreign Muggle holiday.

Those stuck on duty have decided to take a long lunch break and have a celebration of their own, but... it's been a bit of an organizational nightmare, to be quite honest.

This month, you're tasked with solving the logic puzzle below to determine who came to the meal, their job title, what dish they brought to the meal, what they had for dessert, and what other traditional Thanksgiving activity they participated in.




Clues:
1. The five people who came to Thanksgiving were Amy, the one who brought the turkey, the one who played chess afterwards, the Auror, and the one who loves cheesecake.
2. Dustin was glad they didn't have Maria Ana's nut allergy when it was dessert time.
3. The high-protein dish one employee brought gave her lots of energy to hold a parade.
4. Katie's analytical skills came in handy during her after-dinner activity.
5. The Obliviator didn't want to forget the delicious apple pie when she wrote down everything she was grateful for in her Thankfulness jar.
6. Neither Thene's desk job nor a large helping of her famous rolls could stop her from going outside for some exercise after dinner
7. The analyst brought a delicious homemade casserole for her coworkers to enjoy.
8. Amy's mashed potatoes paired well with the Auror's gravy.
9. The parade-holder saved a few of their dessert cookies to pass out instead of candy.
10. The Court Scribe left a smear of cheesecake on a broom handle.
