PrttyMstng your a girl after my own heart, I agree with you, put a simple spoonful on their plate and have them just try it. That's what I do with my child, if they don't like it, don't worry their tastes change as they get older. My son is not afraid of trying new things, though I'm not sure where he gets his fish liking, cause I don't like fish.
Next year have your children help you plan what should be in the Thanksgiving meal, and they may be more open to new things. If you involve them in the planning of meals they will probably begin to like more food varieties.
As for this year, you can always freeze some of the leftovers and bring them out in a few weeks for another meal, and also try some creative things with leftovers, I made a turkey enchilada casserole and boy was it delish!!!!!
Gotta love those little trees, and the rabbit food.
