  1. I got a menu from Auntie Em's in Eagle Rock that looked good. But you have to pick it up by noon on Wednesday.

      we got auntie em's take out last year and it was really great.

    2. Pan's has a very good Turkey Day dinner -- lke be'n at home. The cranberry sauce is a true home style dish that you will not forget.

      1. The best version I ever had was from Clementine in Century City.

        I do not know if they are offering a Thanksgiving menu, but you should check with Little Flower Candy Company in Pasadena because everything I've eaten there is really top notch. If they're offering a Thanksgiving menu at all, I would definitely suggest getting that -- I'm very confident that they'd do a good job with it. (And even if they're not doing anything for Thanksgiving, I strongly suggest everybody stop by for a slice of their almond cake because it's outstanding.)

        1. I did take away one year from gelson's and it was very serviceable.

            Don't flame me., but at work we use Boston Market and their stuff is really pretty good. We've used Gelson's but I don't like the flavor of their stuffing and in previous years the veggies were hard, even after cooking. However their gingered yam souffle rocks!

              I would never flame someone for expressing their taste. I didn't think Gelson's was great, and have only used them the one time. For me personally, Thanksgiving is worth cooking if one possibly can. Having said that, I think we are having our Thanksgiving celebration a week early with our Southern California family and having it at PF Chang's;. (Not my choice).
