Every year, so many of us look forward to feasting all day on Thanksgiving. From the show-stopping turkey dinner to classic Thanksgiving desserts and mashed potatoes, what more could you ask for? And although making your own turkey dinner is absolutely worth it, we also know that hosting is never an easy task.
Curating a fabulous Thanksgiving dinner menu filled with classics like sweet potatoes, decadent stuffing, green beans, and pumpkin pie takes skill and lots of preparation. Then, there is figuring out the order in which everything should be cooked. Plus, if you want to have Thanksgiving appetizers and festive fall cocktails on deck for your guests as they wait for the big meal, that’s another additional task to add to your plate. Although the holidays can be a great time to flex your impressive culinary skills, you may just want to kick back with a hot toddy this Thanksgiving and have someone else take the reins.
Luckily, there are ways around spending the whole day in the kitchen while still having a delicious, festive meal. There are plenty of restaurants open on Thanksgiving that are offering dining in and to-go options such as Boston Market and Denny’s. In addition, grocery stores like Costco and Whole Foods will be open on Thanksgiving, as well as other food delivery services.
