Q: It's the day before Thanksgiving and due to illness we have to cancel going to the big family gathering. I'm wondering what readers would do if they were putting together a Thanksgiving meal for family on very short notice?
We tend to have the same menu every year so I might as well make the best of it and mix in some new recipes, provided they're quick and easy.

Editor: Lisa, I'm so sorry for the last-minute changeup (and the illness). But like you said, it could be a fun opportunity to go off-script and do something a little different.
Readers, what would you suggest for Lisa? Would you still do a turkey, at this point? Or would you go for a ham or a roast chicken?
