Thanksgiving is rapidly approaching. If you’re not into cooking these days, don’t worry, you aren’t alone.
Sometimes you can be the most thankful when you aren’t stuck doing 3 hours worth of dishes, and to be honest, I think we’ve all cooked a lot more at home this year than we’re used to. So if you have some disposable income and you’re interested in skipping the stress of grocery shopping, I invite you to take a look at your options.
There are some phenomenal local restaurants that are offering Thanksgiving carry-out this year and supporting them is a fantastic way to make yourself feel better about not wanting to plan a Thanksgiving dinner.
Veritas will be serving up a traditional Thanksgiving dinner to-go. The menu includes a 15-18 lbs Turkey, roast root veggies, cornbread dressing, 50/50 mash potatoes, roasted and seasoned brussels sprouts, fall harvest salad, turkey gravy, cranberry chutney, and biscuits. The meal serves 4-6 people and you can order yours for $285.
