For some people cooking Thanksgiving dinner is a right of passage. You grow up going to Grandma's house every year and then Finally one year it gets to be your turn. Other people avoid cooking Thanksgiving at all costs.

The pressure of cooking the Turkey for the big day can be tough. That might be why so many people choose to eat something other than the traditional bird. Many of you recently responded on Facebook that you don't go the turkey route instead opting for steak, lasagna even ham.
