Thanksgiving will be here before we know it! We’re looking forward to celebrating the holiday, but like many families in Wisconsin, the celebration will be much smaller than usual. We’re considering whether the cooking and clean-up will be a part of our festivities or if we should let someone else be in charge of the work.
Whether you are looking for ideas to keep your kitchen clean and have more time for board games and Thanksgiving hikes or you’re not quite ready to tackle a turkey on your own, there are many options around the area to lend a hand!
The following Northeast Wisconsin area restaurants do the prep work and/or the cooking – you do the serving at home.
