If you wanted to let somebody else do the Thanksgiving cooking last year, you were pretty much relegated to take-out because of that whole pandemic situation. But we have even more to be grateful for this year, as restaurants have returned to welcoming guests inside for the big turkey-focused holiday feast with both cooking and clean-up included in the deal. Of course, if you want a more traditional at-home celebration with family and friends, family-size to-go packages can still be procured. Whether you pretend you prepped everything yourself is entirely up to you. Read on for 20 can’t-miss options for getting your hands on a lucky wishbone or that final piece of pie this Thanksgiving.
