Unless you want to, of course. Just remember there’s no rule that says a turkey must be present at the Thanksgiving table. And if we had a nickel for every time someone said they’re “not a huge fan of turkey,” we’d be living large. And speaking of nickels, turkeys are pricey AF at this time of year; no one should have to shell out 50 bucks for a bird. Roast a few small chickens-even easier, buy wings, breasts, and thighs, and throw them in the oven.
