Recently, my family got to enjoy an early Thanksgiving dinner delivery from Omaha Steaks.
To make our early celebration extra special, I used my blue Spode dishes which remind me of my grandmother. I love how they look with the orange pumpkin decor.
Omaha Steaks asked me if I wanted to be on Team Turkey or Team Ham to help get the word out about their already cooked Thanksgiving meals and I chose to be on Team Turkey. I would love to try their Thanksgiving Ham Feast, maybe for Christmas dinner. Do you serve ham on Thanksgiving?
I also got to customize my Thanksgiving turkey delivery by choosing two of my favorite sides and my favorite pie.
When they told me this exciting news, I took that to mean that I did not need to call a family meeting to decide what to select. The choice was all mine so I choose Sage Dressing and Brussel Sprouts with Shallots and Bacon. It may be a little untraditional but I chose Pecan Pie over Pumpkin Pie but no one complained. When you put together your Thanksgiving meal, you can choose as many sides and desserts as you would like and you can even be on Team Turkey AND Team Ham. There are lots of options!
Our family has a lot to be thankful for. My regular readers may remember that last year, both my daughter and my son got married within a few months of each other (yes, wow!) and now I am a new empty-nester and a new mother-in-law. We went from a family of four to a family of six. Now I have to share my kids with their in-laws on holidays so some new flexibility is needed.
When I got out of the Army many years ago, I ventured out to California to see a friend I met while serving and I never went back to my home state of Connecticut. I have missed my family for almost every holiday and over the years, that has never changed. I would have to rally and put on a brave face when they would call me and I could hear the family celebrations in the background.
Now I have a new family and the holidays are feeling very special.
I got to test out the turkey home delivery and it is every bit as delicious as the steaks I have tried from Omaha Steaks. Truth be told, cooking a turkey has always been a bit nerve-wracking for me and requires a lot of careful attentiveness. I would rather spend the time with my family then in the kitchen any day.
I have a few favorite things I enjoy making at Thanksgiving like my cranberry dressing but to have a delicious already cooked turkey show up ready to heat and eat is amazing and I am never going back to cooking a turkey myself.
The turkey comes carefully packaged in a cooler with dry ice along with the rest of the sides and the pie. They used bubble wrap too and everything arrived in perfect condition.
When you are ready, you put the turkey in the enclosed bag and tie it with the bag tie (also provided). They have thought of every detail.
The turkey baked to perfection. I was proud to serve it!
The side dishes come in oven-ready trays that you can just pop in the oven and bake.
They don’t take up a lot of room so if you have a small oven as I do, everything fits.
Once the sides were heated, I transferred them to my pretty casserole dishes. This process could not have been easier or less stressful!
I wanted you to see how carefully they packaged the pie.
Who wants some Pecan Pie?
