I think it depends on what you like best. I am not even a huge fan of turkey; I nibbled on the wing, but preferred the asparagus with hollandaise sauce we had as a side.
We did a special thing for Thanksgiving this year. We had each of our children cook one dish. My daughter made potatoes, my older son made mashed potatoes, and my youngest son made ramen noodles. They each felt like they were contributing to our feast, and I think that was more important than including any one particular kind of food.
