Thanksgiving is about many things. Football, the Macy’s Parade, family, giving thanks – all of these things matter little when compared to the food. Thanksgiving food is about eating yourself into a food coma until you can literally not eat another bite.

We’ve put together some weird and wonderful Thanksgiving recipes for you to try out!
