Dishes for someone that doesn't like Thanksgiving food

So, neither my mother nor I like traditional thanksgiving food. In fact, for the last two years she's brought a tray of eggplant parmesan to have something else to eat (which by the way, everyone loved). She's hosting this year and feels obligated to make the traditional turkey and what not, but I'm looking for some suggestions for dishes that could maybe appease both my mother and I and the traditional thanksgiving crowd. Eggplant parmesan is delicious, but too time consuming when you have to make a turkey etc.

Bring on the suggestions!!
