A cozy Thanksgiving murder mystery writing prompt

The table is set for a perfect Thanksgiving dinner: The turkey is beautifully burnished, the rolls are steaming, and the mashed potatoes are brimming with butter.

It’s soon clear that the murderer is sitting right at this very table. But who did it? What was their motive? What was the murder weapon? Which character ultimately solves the crime, and how do they know they’ve found the right answer?
