Now that Halloween is over, many of us are starting to think about Thanksgiving. What time will the party start? Who will we invite? And most importantly, what will we serve? Preparing a Thanksgiving dinner from scratch, with all the sides & desserts, is not only incredibly time-consuming & labor-intensive, it’s also downright intimidating. Luckily, Boston Market offers the perfect solution for busy families looking for an easy, stress-free Thanksgiving dinner. In fact, Boston Market Thanksgiving Home Delivery is a smart choice for families this year.

We recently had the opportunity to try out the Boston Market Whole Roasted Turkey Meal for 12 (retail value of $119.99). This meal includes a whole roasted turkey, spinach artichoke dip, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, cranberry relish, dinner rolls, pumpkins pie and apple pie. If you’re looking for an easy solution for your Thanksgiving dinner, be sure to consider Boston Market Thanksgiving Home Delivery. While the Home Delivery option has frozen food shipped right to your front door, the Boston Market Heat & Serve Meals can be picked up from a Boston Market restaurant right before Thanksgiving. Other meal solutions include Holiday Catering, A La Carte and more – keep reading for a detailed breakdown of all the options toward the end of this post.

With Boston Market Thanksgiving Home Delivery, the food was shipped to me in a cooler and arrived fully frozen. Once everything was thawed, it only took a few hours to heat up & serve. Dinner was on the table in under three hours! Talk about convenience!

We simply followed the instructions that came with the turkey to heat it up (it arrives fully cooked). The skin was golden brown and crispy, while the meat inside was tender and moist. It was the perfect entree for dinner!

To set the mood, I simply placed a variety of small pumpkins, greenery, lanterns and tea light candles on the table. For place cards, I placed a small orange pumpkin and a folded piece of cardstock paper on the plates. I also wrote the guests’ names in gold ink. Easy peasy!

*TIP: To add a little something extra to the mashed potatoes, I topped them with some freshly-chopped herbs, such as parsley.

I can’t believe how quickly this meal came together.
*TIP: To add some extra crunch to the pumpkin pie, I placed a ring of walnuts around the circumference of the pie.

Since this meal was so easy to prepare, it left plenty of time for spending quality time with family & friends. Thanks to Boston Market Thanksgiving Home Delivery, I was able to sit down during the entire dinner and chat, tell jokes and catch up with everyone.

My whole family really enjoys the Boston Market sides. It would be difficult to pick a favorite. While I really enjoyed the Spinach Artichoke dip, my daughter absolutely loved the mashed potatoes w/ gravy.
