In a year that’s become legendary for the level of “quiet quitting,” some Thanksgiving cooks are extending that attitude to their holiday meal efforts. They’re having Thanksgiving dinner delivered directly to their doors, whether as ready-to-cook kits or heat-and-serve prepared meals.
Before you start shopping, you’ll want to consider several factors, including your budget. The average price for a 10-person Thanksgiving meal was $53.31 in 2021, according to a recent survey. These delivered options will cost more, sometimes significantly so.
Still, if you factor in the value of your time and effort, it might seem like a good deal. And if you’re feeling anxious about your cooking skills, you might appreciate the culinary support these services provide, no matter what they cost.
Check out this list of popular, highly-rated services that will do some or all of the work for you. You could even order an extra dinner box to be delivered to older adults, new parents or any other stressed-out friend who would appreciate a helping hand with the holiday meal. You can choose from vegan or vegetarian options, sites that allow you to order just a turkey or just the sides, or even a super-spendy “meal fit for royalty.”
Be sure to pay attention to order-by deadlines to ensure enough time to thaw the turkey, if necessary. Once the feast is ordered and on its way, you can relax and anticipate the beauty of an outsourced meal that checks all of your culinary boxes.
