If the prospect of roasting a turkey in the oven just doesn't appeal this holiday or your kitchen's in disarray, local grocery store delicatessans and restaurants offer variety and ease at Thanksgiving. Want free-range? Organic and free-range? Need sides and pie? What if you want to go sans-turkey this year? They've got your covered.
Alas, it's too late for Dittmer's smoked turkeys, or A.G. Ferrari's turkey with glorious sides, but there's still time to order via Whole Food Market and Hobee's.
Deadlines are coming up, though, and fast!
