Thanksgiving is meant to be a time to celebrate family and loved ones, reminiscing about the many things you have to be thankful for. But, if you've ever hosted a Thanksgiving Dinner or even helped prepare one, you know that the holiday can also be filled with stress, rushing, drama, and simply put, chaos. It can be tempting to just hand over the festivities to the professionals. And why not? With a large list of family friendly restaurants open on Thanksgiving Day, there's no shame in moving your celebration to one of your favorite restaurants and letting them handle all of the stress and planning.
Imagine this scene: It's Thanksgiving and your entire extended family is visiting from out of town. Dinner is served and all of your favorites are there — roasted turkey, cranberry relish, glazed sweet potatoes, pumpkin and apple pies But you didn't prepare any of it. In fact, you got to enjoy the entire meal, catching up with loved ones, without even leaving your seat or checking your oven once. And when the meal is over, there's not a dish for you to wash.
It sounds like a dream, right?
You may be skeptical, but even the most composed of hostesses deserve a break to enjoy the holiday so taking your celebrations to a restaurant might be just the way to do it.
