I’m not a big fan of the traditional turkey Thanksgiving dinner.
It might be that because as a child we usually had steaks for Thanksgiving dinner.
My father hated poultry.
My mother happily agreed to this break from tradition, knowing that roasting a turkey + making all the trimmings was WORK– while grilling steaks, making a salad, and mashing potatoes was about as EZPZ as a holiday meal could get.
Also, we never, ever had pumpkin pie.
My mother despised it so she usually made a lemon meringue pie.
That was her favorite pie.
And me, little Ally Bean? I liked whatever the grown-ups decided to give me, so whatever Thanksgiving meal showed up was [and is] cool by me.
In fact, if you’re all about a traditional turkey-centric, carbohydrate-ful Thanksgiving dinner every year, then enjoy.
But if you’re a little more loosey-goosey [so to speak] about what you have for Thanksgiving dinner, then you might be, like me, a Turkey Day Outlier.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING, EVERYONE!
