Every year something breaks at my house ON THANKSGIVING DAY. Dishwasher. Oven. Disposal. They’ve all broken in the past 5 years … precisely on Thanksgiving day. Picking up the meal is looking mighty tempting as I wonder what will break this year.

If you are tempted to ditch the dirty dishes that come from hours (or days) of prep, here are some options to consider.

*If your company is not listed, please let us know if you have a Thanksgiving special menu and we will make sure we include it next year.

Imagine only worrying about your place setting this Thanksgiving… image from our Thanksgiving table setting post last year.

Bros has been saving people from the perils of frying their own turkeys for well over a decade, as I ordered one 15 or 16 years ago. Definitely a tasty alternative to the baked turkey and will free up your oven. To order call 615 329-2626. For more on the fried turkeys: click here.
