Okay, you water-scorchers out there have nooooo excuse for not having a proper Thanksgiving meal this year. Probably the best deal I've seen is ~HAWTHORNE LANE'S~ "Thanksgiving-to-Go." Starting tomorrow, November 1, you can reserve either a ready-for-the-oven holiday meal or a pre-measured ingredients kit including recipes with step-by-step instructions from Executive Chef Bridget Batson for taking the feast from the box to the table. You'll get a 12-pound, ready-to-roast turkey with lots of gravy, Gravenstein apple and sausage stuffing, garnet yam puree, Brussels sprouts with double-smoked bacon, a dozen signature chive biscuits and a pumpkin pie. It's totally idiot-proof! The dinner serves six to eight people and costs $120.00 plus tax. Chef Bridget also includes some recipes for creative "day after" dishes, such as turkey potpie and turkey and Brussels sprouts pasta.
Orders may be placed between November 1-November 17 by calling 415-777-9779 or by completing the online order form available here. Orders are to be picked up Tuesday and Wednesday, November 22nd and 23rd. Hawthorne Lane accepts all major credit cards.
Another option for you non-cooks out there is to order your dinner through ~OAKVILLE GROCERY~, which includes a whole-roasted turkey for $49.95—this fully cooked turkey is from Diestel Family Turkey Ranch in Sonora, and weighs approximately 12-14 lbs., and serves eight. There are also starters available for order, like homemade butternut squash and pear soup, wild mushroom tartlets, and sides like a classic cranberry sauce, roasted garlic mashed potatoes, turkey gravy, and artisan bread dressing with fennel and apples. And of course there are pies—these are from Napa Valley's Sweetie Pies Bakery.
You can call any one of the four Oakville Grocery stores up until Sunday, November 19 at 5pm—they can fax you a menu.
