Year old frozen turkey

So, I'm a little embarrassed to post this question, but I have a turkey that has been sitting in our freezer for almost a whole year. Last year, my mother in-law kept on insisting that I take advantage of the grocery store turkey sales around thanksgiving and so I picked one up and it's been taking up freezer space ever since then.

Question... is it still safe to roast? Thanksgiving is going to be really low key this year since I'm expecting baby #2 really soon... no need to impress guests or in-laws. I'd feel bad just tossing it. Can I defrost it to make something else... oh, I dunno, enchiladas or a soup?

TIA!!!
