Thanksgiving is – usually – the ultimate in family togetherness. Dusting off your grandmother’s recipes, toiling away in the kitchen, and finally gathering around a table to feast with those you love. But why take on that responsibility when you can let someone else cook, and actually enjoy the day (for once). Here are some places that will lend you a helping hand.
Starks Steak and Seafood – Santa Rosa
A dinner for two is as romantic a Thanksgiving as you can get. This complete dinner set starts you off with a delicious soup and salad, followed by turkey with chorizo stuffing and other delectable sides. You can finish off your meal with an optional apple cake or pumpkin pie.

Whole Foods – Multiple Locations
Whole Foods, as you can imagine, has a few different ways to go. Their “Holiday Feast” serves 12 and has a turkey and a ham, plus all the extras. There are also smaller (or just more turkey-centric/organic) options that will serve 4-12. They also still have their regular dinners on offer, so you can skip the turkey entirely if that’s what you’d prefer.

2020 and 2021 has thrown everybody its fair share of changes. Maybe it’s time to make some positive changes of your own and embrace a Thanksgiving that doesn’t involve cooking all day long while everyone else watches football in the other room. This holiday could be – dare we say it? – relaxing. Maybe even fun!
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone, no matter how you celebrate it.
