Thanksgiving-to-go is becoming the new normal, so let one of these Kansas City restaurants cook your bird, buns, and blackberry shoemaker.
Making Thanksgiving dinner is time consuming and expensive.
A 2019 Lending Tree survey found that Thanksgiving hosts spent an average of $ 310.25 on a meal that provided food for 10 guests.
With the stress we’ve been experiencing over the last two years, it would be understandable to get someone else to make your Thanksgiving meal so you can actually enjoy the day instead of squeezing into the kitchen.
Choose from the complete Thanksgiving meal, only the turkey, or just the sides or desserts. Make Thanksgiving 2021 work for you. Do not be enslaved by traditions in a pandemic.
