Hampton Roads Thanksgiving Dining Guide
Monday, 15 November 2010 00:00

Thanksgiving1Contributed by Kimberley Cuachon-Haugh

When you think of Thanksgiving, what ultimately comes to mind is food and plenty of it. But with all those traditional and lovely dishes come a not so eventful evening and perhaps morning-after of dirty, caked-on dishes. So, save your hands and your newly done manicure by skipping out on washing dishes, omitting the “I don’t like my mashed potatoes done that way” nonsense, and the stress of trying to keep all the food from getting ice cold, by taking your family gathering to a delicious restaurant— just leave it to the professionals. That isn’t to say that the festivities cannot continue at your home, with a little hand on the extra labor you’re sure to have a truly thankful Thanksgiving.
