Thanksgiving is a time to spend with family and friends and reflect on all that you have to be grateful for. It is also a time to eat a fantastic feast and enjoy yourself! Too often people get so swept up in the preparations for Thanksgiving, the cooking, the cleaning, the planning, etc., that they forget that this is also a holiday to relax and enjoy yourself! This year, if you’d rather dine out than have a catered Thanksgiving at home, forget the stress and simply enjoy a meal with your family and friends – no clean up necessary!
