Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate with family and friends, around the table and around the TV. Thanksgiving dinner, which traditionally features a main dish usually turkey or beef, with several sides including mashed potatoes, stuffing, 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!
