When I ate meat, Thanksgiving was a gift from the Gods. I put in zero work preparing the food, and I got to eat my weight in both turkey and ham without feeling an ounce of guilt.

Or maybe your mom has started flooding your Facebook timeline with every imaginable pumpkin-inspired recipe (thanks, mom).
