Last year over 15 million Americans opted to sit back in a booth and let others cook the turkey for them. For all of us who work so hard and get so little time to spend with the people that we want to be with, the idea of spending the majority of our holiday preparing, cooking and cleaning just doesn’t cut it.
Or maybe you’re not going to be with your family this year, but you still want that delicious turkey. Behold, our handy-dandy guide to eating Thanksgiving dinner in the Miami Valley
And don’t forget to ask for leftovers, some restaurants will pack you a little take home box so you can have a turkey sandwich later.
