With the chaos of Thanksgiving Day comes an overcrowded oven, spilled gravy and other inevitable occurrences that are sure to throw a wrinkle in our holiday plans. Although we enjoy the age-old tradition of roasting a turkey and peeling potatoes, this year some of us are throwing in the towel and letting the experts do their job … and we salute you!
If you are tempted to ditch the hours of prep and the dirty dishes, here are some options to consider. Pick up all or part of your Thanksgiving meal this year because, let’s face it, Thanksgiving is about the people surrounding you at the table, not the tears cried over dry turkey.
Holiday Deli & Ham Co.
Multiple locations around Memphis; find yours here.
With many area locations, finding a Holiday Deli & Ham restaurant should be simple. For Thanksgiving, consider the honey-glazed turkeys and hams available in a range of sizes priced at $6.99 per pound and up.

Their Papa’s Pimento Cheese ($6.99/lb) or black bean and corn salad ($4.99/lb) are easy dip-style appetizers for your guests to enjoy while you finish transferring those wonderful casseroles to your own serving dishes.
