Have you ever had a nightmare for Thanksgiving? I mean nightmare like…. Gravy the consistency of glue, a turkey drier than an Arizona summer or… your turkey was still frozen solid- on Thanksgiving morning. I’ve been there. It always makes me think of “A Christmas Story” where the dog snatches the turkey and they have to go out to eat at a Chinese restaurant on Christmas day. Ha! Been there. Done that.
As a family, we have gone out to eat instead of making Thanksgiving dinner at home a few times. Honestly, they were the best times. We were able to just enjoy family time. No dishes. No cooking. No cleaning. It’s easy and hassle free. Many of us worked in essential industries (health care, government, military, etc.) and usually worked the day of, the day before and after. We just wanted to spend the day as a family vs having the day completely gone due to spending the day cooking. It works out great.
Buca di Beppo will be open on Thanksgiving and that means you can have a Buca Style Thanksgiving feast. You can either make Thanksgiving reservations to dine in or order the Buca di Beppo Thanksgiving Feast Party Pans and pick it up curbside. Many businesses will still be open- why not bring Thanksgiving to work Buca style! Not only will they have the Thanksgiving feast, their full menu will also be available. Yum!
Thanksgiving Feast includes classic Thanksgiving items with an Italian twist, such as: choice of sliced white meat turkey or hickory-smoked ham, homestyle gravy, roasted garlic mashed potatoes, spicy Italian sausage stuffing, green beans and cranberry sauce and even pumpkin pie!
Is there a time where you wish that you wish you hadn’t cooked Thanksgiving dinner at home and had it catered or gone out to eat?
