Traditions, turkeyless, and tears

This is the first Thanksgiving we're having since my mom passed away 4 months ago, and I'm not looking forward to it. My sister has invited my little family (me, hubby, and 3yr old) to her in-laws house, but I'm not comfortable with their family. I want to start a tradition at our home, cook something small but special, and do something so I'm not thinking about her all day and how much my heart is broken. [more inside]

Where to eat Thanksgiving, Portland, Oregon.

Where do we eat Thanksgiving dinner out, traditional style, under $30 per person in Portland, Oregon; family of 4 adults. Bonus points for live music of any kind, and/or great ambiance/view. We're familiar with Portland, and would love to use public transport rather than drive...we'll be staying in Rose Garden district, walking distance to light rail.

Turkey is a vegetable, right?

Last Thanksgiving, the sight of the raw turkey brining in the fridge tipped my wife from being somewhat "icked out" out by some meat (specifically, uncooked and bone-in cooked) over to being a (lacto, semi-ovo) vegetarian. She is uncomfortable with having turkey in the house at all this year -- but to me a Thanksgiving without a turkey seems hardly a Thanksgiving at all. What to do? [more inside]

How can you have any meat if you haven't had your pudding?

I could have sworn that I read something by Jeffrey Steingarten in which he encourages his readers to cook a turkey roast made of turkey breast, herbs, and possibly other meats tied together with twine, instead of fussing with a full sized bird. It's not in The Man Who Ate Everything, however. Does anyone remember this? Or, could someone recommend an easy to make, impressive main dish for our Christmas dinner?
