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 Christmas, 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.

Complete transparency here, this year, I am traveling to Long Island to see my family and have dinner with my best friend and her family. I will be cooking for Christmas Eve.  I’m doing the side dishes and the desserts.

This year’s showstopper dessert will be an Italian Rainbow Cookie Cheesecake.

But 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 on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day.

You can head out to a local restaurant and not have to worry or stress 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 Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

The choices run from upscale to casual, with a variety of menu items to choose from.

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 holiday season.

God Bless you and have a warm and safe holiday.
