People Really Do Go Out On Thanksgiving

I used to think people were crazy were going out for Thanksgiving Meal, but in recent years I've completely changed my way of thinking. I've become one of them. As much as might enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving meal - minus the stuffing, green bean casserole, and cranberries - there's something to be said for going out.

Thanksgiving Is Hard Work

Preparing a Thanksgiving Day meal is no simple chore. It's hard work, it's time-consuming, and that says nothing about the clean-up before and after the meal.

I know some may really enjoy the challenge of creating a fantastic meal for their family, but not everyone feels the same way.
