If a happy Thanksgiving for you means NOT cooking, you’ll be pleased to know there are an array of to-go dinners (order in advance) for just about every budget that you can enjoy while remaining safer at home.
Then, you can spend the day being grateful and watching Friends Thanksgiving episodes.
$10.29 La Madeleine is offering a sliced oven-roasted turkey with creamy mushroom sauce, green beans almondine and homemade cranberry apple stuffing served with a side of cranberry orange chutney. My local La M doesn’t do well under pressure on special days but for coffee or an omelet other times, they’re great. So, if you want to take a chance, you’ll only be out $10 (or more if you get dessert).
$10.99 Denny’s has a Turkey and Dressing meal that comes with mashed potatoes, gravy and broccoli (or your choice of vegetables), cranberry sauce and bread. I got it once. It wasn’t great but it was okay. It didn’t come close to Cracker Barrel, though.
$40 Clyde’s is offering a Traditional Turkey Dinner for One for $39.99. It includes sliced white AND dark turkey meat, sausage-sage stuffing, mashed potatoes, glazed sweet potatoes, green beans, turkey gravy, cranberry sauce and a choice of apple pie, pecan pie or pumpkin pie, served with fresh whipped cream. Order by November 21, 2021. Though a pricier option, this meal consistently gets rave reviews from diners. Reston, VA.
