Every day the good Lord allows me to wake up, I am thankful for another day. I am thankful to be surrounded by the people I love. I am thankful for the roof over our head, and the ability to pay for it. I am thankful for the food on our table.

On Thanksgiving, I am especially thankful for the option of not having to cook. Don’t get me wrong, I have a love affair with my kitchen, but sometimes it’s all too much. Should I travel to see relatives who are 120 miles away? Should I travel up North only to be stuck in traffic? I’m sure some of these things run through the minds of many.

What if you’re not in the mood to cook? What if you can’t cook? Do you get anxiety because there are too many people to cook for?

Then why not dine out for Thanksgiving?

You can head out to a local restaurant and not have to worry or stress out about all the things I mentioned above.

I’ve put together a list of places that would be delighted to feed you, your family, and your friends this Thanksgiving.

The choices run from upscale to casual, with a variety of menu items to choose from. If you’re not feeling Turkey, stuffing, or mashed potatoes, Italian food could be an option. There’s no law against not eating turkey on Thanksgiving.

I’m pretty sure no one will look at you sideways for ordering a burger or a steak at your local diner or restaurant this Thanksgiving.

I was thinking about heading to Long Island, but I haven’t firmed up my travel plans just yet.

I’m kind of thinking about going out to a local place for a holiday dinner. The family and friends might be upset by that choice. They love when I bring my homemade baked goods and yummy sides to the holiday table.

If I decide to stay close, I’ll have to make up for it by baking extra goodies to bring home around the Christmas holiday.
