Prepared Thanksgiving meals

Grocery stores here will prepare a turkey or ham and all the fixins and sides for $50 and up. You just pick it up and reheat. Anyone do this? nightly news said this business is up 30% this year. Easy I suppose.

I've seen ads like that at Foodlion. Kroger probably does it as well.

I know that one of my aunts buys them every now and then if she's hosting the party and doesn't have enough time to cook everything. They're usually pretty good but the last time she did this (about 4 years ago) the bird was really dry.

On the news here Monday nite a station was reporting that one local grocery store in LR was having to work their people overtime to fill just over 200 orders for these boxed meals so someone must be doing it.

if i ever even suggested doing something like this in my family, i'd be called blasphemous! i'm sure this is a great way to take the stress out of the holiday, but in all honesty, cooking is a HUGE part of the Thanksgiving tradition in my family. my mom, sisters and i are usually in the kitchen laughing, talking, helping and watching my mom prepare the same foods her mother, grandmother and great grandmother prepared lovingly. and really...nothing beats the soul food recipes that my family has been passing down for generations.

What about leftovers? There can't be that much from a store prepared dinner to the over-flowing feast that comes from your own kitchen. I mean how could I live without mini turkey sandwiches on brown-n-serve rolls with thick layers of Miracle Whip? It's the end of civilazation as we know it!

My brother just graduated from college and moved about 600 miles away from home and he couldn't come home for Thanksgiving so he ordered a Turkey Plate from Cracker Barrel (bless his heart).
