Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate with family and friends, eat a lot of food, and for many watch football.  Thanksgiving dinner, which traditionally features a main dish usually turkey or beef, with several sides including mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, and cranberry sauce followed by a dessert like a pumpkin or an apple pie or cheesecake can take all day to prepare.

Creating this feast can be a daunting task even for the most experienced home chef, but have no fear Thanksgiving meal kits are here!
