Want to celebrate the day of thanks, but not planning on cooking a full dinner this year? Don’t quit Thanksgiving cold turkey — we’ve got you covered with where to dine in + carry out for Thanksgiving dinner.
Due to an avian flu (bird flu), inflation, and supply chain hold-ups, turkey is a bit on the pricy side this year — costing about $2 per pound, over 70% higher than last year. There are still plenty of places to grab your Thanksgiving bird, but there are other options on the table.
We are totally falling for these local options — plus, we break down where to get local ingredients for those rolling up their sleeves in the kitchen this holiday. What could be butter? (Sorry, are our puns too corny? 🌽)
