Thanksgiving at home
I need to find a place where I can buy a turkey already fully cooked and ready to serve, and some side dishes as well for Thanksgiving dinner. I will be working the day before and on Thanksgiving day, so I will not have time to prepare dinner myself. Last year we got food from Boston Market, and it was mediocre at best. BORING!!!
I would prefer NOT to go to center city or South Philly. Anywhere else is fine.
Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks for any help you can give.
I have not purchased a cooked turkey from Whole Foods but i did use them for my fresh organic one year and I added an order for a couple of sides. They were really very good and if Boston Market is the yardstick I think they will delight this Chowhound. I was very impressed with how efficiently WF organized their Thanksgiving order and pick up process but you do need to plan ahead and schedule a pick up time. I checked their website and it seems that they are promoting only Oven Ready turkey or turkey breasts but I think it is worth a call or visit to ask if they will roast it for you.
If you log on to foodnetwork.com there are restaurants that feature all-ready cooked turkeys.
Last year around this time, I saw fried turkeys that looked absolutely divine.
I cannot remember the restaurant but I do know that they deliver anywhere in the world.
So try going to a website that features cooked turkey that can be delivered right to your door.
I'm not seeing the Thanksgiving menu on the website but I saw the flyer in the Cherry Hill store. Six locations in New Jersey and one in Philadelphia at
1352 South Street.
