 Does anyone have any interesting food ideas? >>

Foe many years I had a Vegetarian Thanksgiving, with a stuffed Winter Squash 
as the "centerpiece/Turkey" .. If you can find a Hubbard Squash, it actually 
looks a little like a Turkey.. Use any "regular" stuffing or dressing 
depending what part of the world you are in... and after scooping out the 
seeds etc, having cut a circl eout o fthe "top" ..depending on which side you 
wish to lie it on... stuff and bake about an hour..or until a fork pierces 
the skin & flesh.. You can do the same with any large squash...ButterCup or  
Hokkaido or.. I forget all the names ...But its worth finding a Hubbard.. 
they come in 3 kinds/colors.. Orange/Grey Green/Dark Green... and have a 
large cavity after you remove the seeds etc.. 
For a Stuffing, I most usually used a Blue Cornbread with 
Pecans/Mushrooms/dried Cranberries .. But also Wild rice with Fennel, Dried 
Cranberries, hazelnuts..  Im sure someone has some specifically fat free 
Stuffing recipes around..
Any kind will do. 
You can also stuff individual Acorn Squash..But again, the Hubbard really 
made a great satisfying "centerpiece" or "Turkey"..
