Get by with a little help this Thanksgiving

While many home cooks think of this as the holiday to make everything from scratch, there is no shame in cutting a few corners to avoid a little stress. And you’ll even have more time to spend with loved ones. Isn’t that what the holiday is really about? Here are a few spots where you can stock up on Thanksgiving goodies. Call ahead for ordering deadlines and availability.

Starters, sides, salads, soups, breads, uncooked turkey, dessert and wine.

Soups, sides and dessert.

Uncooked and cooked turkeys (Heritage and others), sides, dessert and bread.

Fried turkeys and sides

Uncooked and cooked turkeys, spiral hams, sides, desserts, bread, wine and grocery items.

Turkeys, sides and desserts. Click here for the menu.

Fifth Earl Market

Muss and Turners
Full dinners (deadline is 11/22). Click here for the menu.

Everything but the bird.
If you don’t feel like cooking at all, find a restaurant that is open on Thanksgiving through Open Table or just head to Buford Highway where most places are open 365/7.

Have another place to add to the list? Email me at theblissfulglutton@gmail.com or post in the comment section of this story.

    I’ve seen advertising for Park 75 (The Four Seasons) Turkey to Go. It’s 195$ for a turkey, numerous sides, rolls and two pies. It serves eight people with left overs. If it’s anything like the food they serve, I bet it would be the best turkey dinner you could buy!!!

    Sawicki’s in Decatur also does a great job with this- their turkeys are fabulous.
