Can you believe Thanksgiving is just a week away? The holidays bring families together to celebrate all our many gifts in life. But let’s be real: getting that big spread together can be very time-consuming. One of the best solutions is ordering some or all of your meal to be prepared for you! Be sure to start planning ahead this week. Here are a few suggestions for a stress-free 2017 Thanksgiving meal!

Mimi’s Café offers a to-go meal that is a delicious solution for those who aren’t culinary pros. The feast includes a herb and butter basted turkey, creamy mashed potatoes, apple cranberry relish, and cornbread stuffing. Families in the Northwest Arkansas area you can order the whole meal or just the sides.  Also, when you order a Holiday Feast from Mimi’s they donate four meals to children in need. A win-win for sure.

The Fresh Market has everything you need for a meal from 2 to 20! You can get the desserts, sides, just the turkey or the whole meal! Be sure to order ahead or stop by and grab some of their goodies yourself.

Copeland’s of New Orleans is known for their yummy traditional fare with a creole twist. You can dine in or pick up a cajun fried turkey! Call ahead for reservations or for to-go items.

While tradition calls for turkey, ordering a ham from one of the HoneyBaked Ham locations in Jonesboro, Fort Smith, Fayetteville, or Bentonville is a snap. Hams come cooked and ready to eat and all you have to do is warm it in the oven. Served with all the yummy sides, you won’t miss the bird a bit!

Maybe you love to cook but just aren’t a baker. Feast your eyes on Village Inn pies! They have all the favorites to choose from. Try their pecan, apple, cherry, lemon meringue, or even something extra special: Pumpkin Supreme – a traditional baked pumpkin pie with whipped cream, toasted pecans and drizzled with caramel. Yum!
