Thanksgiving Dinner for a working stiff in South Boston
It will be a working day for me ... so I'm searching for somewhere in Southie to pick up a meal or to enjoy one.
Thanks in advance.
Chowhound heresy perhaps, but another option would be to pre-order the prepared turkey dinner from the Stop and Shop at South Bay and enjoy it before, during and after Thanksgiving. It's $59 for a full turkey with sides and a choice of pie, and $24 for a smaller, breast only with sides portion.
I was on an island last Thanksgiving with a Stop and Shop and none of my pantry items or cooking equipment. I went this route and it was surprisingly successful. I tweaked the sides a bit but it really is heat and serve. You get all the Thanksgiving smells and plenty of leftovers, as well as the convenience of having it whenever you want.
You would have to order ahead, but you can do that on-line, and I think you pick it up the day before.
In a pinch it worked well, and its hard to mess up squash and pumpkin pie!
Good luck and enjoy the day whatever you choose!
