Life can be unpredictable, thrown in a holiday, and it can get plain crazy. A few years ago, my husband was in the hospital with pneumonia up until Thanksgiving, one year a kid was sick. Whether it’s an illness or a changed work schedule, you might find yourself the week before Thanksgiving trying to put together a meal. Never fear! You can order Thanksgiving Dinner, some locations for delivery! So sit back, relax, and let someone else cook.
