Take-Home Thanksgiving Meals
If you’re looking to bring something home to enjoy the comfort of your own space but still not deal with the hassle of a full holiday meal, there are a few businesses in the Treasure Valley pre-selling holiday meals for pick up or delivery. Most grocery stores in the area are open on Thanksgiving but with reduced hours. Many will have a hot bar serving up traditional holiday dishes buffet-style while their supplies last.
The weekly meal prep chef now has a menu of prix fixe Thanksgiving meals. Each item comes as take-and-bake, giving you the hottest meal without any of the cooking.
