The holidays can become an overwhelming task with decorating, cooking and reconnecting with loved ones you haven’t seen since last year at this time. Knowing that everyone is expecting Grandma’s pound cake or Aunt Mary’s famous dressing can put pressure on the family who’s hosting Thanksgiving this year. If the pressure is too high or you know your cooking skills don’t compare to Aunt Mary and Grandma, here are a few suggestions that could save you a lot of time and frustration.
Purchase your meal rather than sweat over a hot oven. These destinations will provide you with everything you need to pull off the traditional ambiance of having the home cooked feel.
HoneyBaked – they have more to offer than just ham. Get turkey or ham and quite a few great sides as well.
Boston Market – this is a quick and easy choice with all the fixings.
Whole Foods Market – there are many unique selections along with traditional choices that will have your relatives intrigued.
Golden Corral – this last minute back-up plan will save the day every time.
Rather not have dozens of people over for Thanksgiving dinner, enjoy a night out at these delicious locations.
Pueblo Harvest Café – feel like a part of history by visiting this culturally rich setting.
Sandia Casino (Thur Shan Buffet) – always a favorite with a large selection of international and domestic dishes.
Cracker Barrel – it’s homemade food just not made in your own home.
Furr’s Cafeteria – this place has fed the family many times so using them for this occasion won’t be a surprise.
These are just a few ideas to help you survive Thanksgiving dinner. Know of a great place that you would like to share with the rest of us, post it on our Facebook page!
Oh yeah, have a Happy Thanksgiving!
