It’s time to talk about Thanksgiving! But I have a confession: I am not a cook. I don’t really enjoy it and cooking is definitely not a specialty of mine. However, I’m great at takeout!
This is such a great time of year getting together with friends, family and neighbors creating memories for years to come. I think of all my Thanksgiving pasts and one memory that comes to me year after year is standing in the kitchen with my mother doing the dishes – don’t get me wrong, I enjoy spending this time with my mother, but handwashing all the dishes isn’t my idea of a great time. Therefore, I have come up with a few options for takeout in the Denver area.
If you’re looking for extra things to do on top of a fantastic Thanksgiving meal, read on! There are a few events happening Thanksgiving weekend that may be a great addition to your calendar as well as volunteer opportunities.
Takeout in Central Park
Thanksgiving dinner for four: fully prepared, just heat and eat. Meal includes turkey (light and dark meat), cornbread dressing (chef momma’s recipe), homemade rolls, cranberry ginger sauce, green bean casserole (from scratch), mashed potatoes and gravy. Meal is $175 and includes delivery on Tuesday before Thanksgiving. The last day to order is 11/10, or until we sell out.
Full meal is $79.99 (includes: turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, creamed kale and spinach, cranberry sauce, French Brioche Petite Rolls), serves 6-8
Order by November 10! A la cart menu allowing you to mix and match amazing sides and desserts. Unfortunately, the turkey itself is not available but there is a wonderful spiral ham option still available
Elita (Stanley Marketplace)
A La Carte menu with several Mediterranean/Latin American tasty offerings. Side note – definitely one of my favorite places for lunch or dinner in all of Central Park!
