Are you kidding? A pillow will do nicely. But I do recommend one postprandial beverage that is tailor-made for Thanksgiving: amari, the Italian range of digestifs that can do wonders to counter that overstuffed feeling.
Fernet-Branca is well known, gloriously bitter and surprising refreshing. Nonino makes a lighter, slightly sweeter amaro that suggested to David Wondrich, the drinks authority, a cocktail of half amaro and half rye whiskey. Sounds ideal after Thanksgiving. Or if needed, simply drink the amaro straight.
