Shopping, prepping, and cooking all the ingredients needed to make Thanksgiving dinner can feel like a daunting undertaking, and now even more so amid the pandemic. It is obvious that Thanksgiving will feel a lot different this year, why not totally change it up and purchase your Thanksgiving meal to-go?
