This year has definitely been one for the books, and the holidays will be different as well. The world is pretty diverse right now. Some will celebrate Thanksgiving solo, while others will celebrate with only their household members.
Thanks to modern technology like Zoom, Skype, Video chat and FaceTime, we can still see and speak with our loved ones and have some video chatting fun.
If you're in the holiday spirit, but not the cooking spirit, we've found some local restaurants and markets that don't mind doing the cooking for you—providing in store pickup, curbside pickup, dine in, and delivery options.
Bob Evans Restaurant
Bob Evans has five Thanksgiving dinner meals to choose from, including the Farmhouse Feast, which is a complete turkey day meal that can feed up to 12 people. They pack the feast cold and ready, so all you would need to do is heat it and eat it. The feast includes slow-roasted turkey and dressing, mashed potatoes smothered in gravy, fresh buttery sweet corn, green beans with ham, cranberry sauce, holiday pies and dinner rolls.
You will need to place your order no later than Tuesday, November 24, 2020, if you're going to pick up your order at your local Bob Evans by Wednesday, November 25, 2020.
