Now that we are into November, it feels like the holidays are around the corner. And like everything since March, we know they're going to be a little different. 

I spent a lot of time thinking about our offerings this year, and have made a few changes from our past menus. This year, we decided to include turkey breast alongside our regular full packages that serve 4 or 8. If you want to take a break from cooking, you can truly take a break, heat it up, and enjoy the time with your loved ones.

I also felt like being a one-stop shop for Thanksgiving would make life easier, so I am thrilled that we have partnered with some of our Hatch Kitchen friends. The following add ons will be available this year:

  • Sweet Potato pies from Joyebell's
  • A selection of cakes and pies from Fat Rabbit Cakes 
  • A selection of wines from RichWine 

In addition to creating a one-stop-shop, we added an option for single diners called the Simple Celebration. It's a Thanksgiving meal for one that comes with turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, stuffing, green beans and a piece of pie. So whether you are celebrating solo, or just want a less extravagant experience, this is a great option. And if you know someone who will be solo this holiday, it's a great gift.

Tommy and I have enjoyed some version of Friendsgiving since we met. It has always been really special to us to spend the holiday with old and new friends. A couple of weeks ago some of our neighborhood friends asked if we would be hosting again this year. Given the current COVID status, that doesn't feel comfortable to us. But most of them live alone, don't have family nearby, and probably won't make a full meal for one. We will be inviting our neighbors over for a socially distanced chat, and we will send them home with a meal. That feels like the spirit of Thanksgiving I always loved. 

As always, we hope that Eat Smart makes meal prep and life in general a little easier and it's no different when it comes to the holidays. All of these options will be available for pick up or delivery the day before Thanksgiving.
