Exactly three weeks from today, the 2020 calendar will tell us it's Thanksgiving, but November 26 of this year will most likely not resemble turkey days of the past thanks to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

But regardless of how your celebration is altered this year, there is no denying that the day still will center around one key thing - food.

The Food Network decided now would be a good time to break down which states will be preparing which dishes for the holiday.

For South Dakota, they went with a classic - pumpkin pie made from scratch. It's hard to go wrong with that.

They even included a link to one of their favorite recipes for this turkey day staple.

And while their pick for the Mount Rushmore State was a traditional dish, the selections for these 19 states borders on bizarre:

  • Arkansas: Turkey Spaghetti
