holiday meals you don't have to cook

Thanksgiving Feasts Without The Fuss

Thanksgiving is a time for gratitude, family, and feasting. I love spending time with my family during the holidays, some of whom I only see during this time of year. I do not, however, enjoy the cooking…much. I’m the girl who shows up with her fork in tow.

Don’t get me wrong, when I’m in the mood, I have my specialties: sweet potato pies, chicken and dumplings, and a little macaroni and cheese every now and again. But I’m not terribly interested in preparing an entire meal and this year, I’m not doing any of it. Sorry, K.

I’m sure I’m not the only one who loves all the eating without all the cooking so this year, I’ve compiled a short list of New York restaurants that are serving Thanksgiving feasts. There’s a little something for everyone! Bon appetit!
