Last Thanksgiving I attempted and succeeded at cooking a whole turkey in my crockpot, as well as two side dishes. (I have three crockpots total--definitely not something I need from Santa this year!) After all the cooking, I needed a long winter's nap because all that hard work flared up my fibromyalgia...
This year, I wanted to go out to eat, but it is really hard to find a restaurant that serves a good Thanksgiving meal without spending a lot of money.
Thankfully, on a trip to Trader Joe's, I discovered their cornucopia of heat-and-eat options for our holiday feast. Usually heat-and-eat means having to get a whole turkey or just the turkey breast, but at Trader Joe's they are selling a fully-cooked half turkey, which is the perfect compromise. I get my dark and white meat and I don't have to clear off a whole shelf in the frig to store it until Thursday.
So what are you doing for Thanksgiving and your other holiday meals? Share your answer in my poll below:
