It’s nearly a New Year, which means it’s time to reflect upon the last 12 months.

The Showpig.com crew wondered what a Thanksgiving dinner would look like without turkey, so we headed over to porkbeinspired.com. The National Pork Board’s recipes got us excited about skipping the turkey, and we’re sharing our favorites with you!
