Make Thanksgiving Dinner Easy as (Pumpkin) Pie - Make Reservations at Buca Di Beppo

Thanksgiving is just about here and we are so lucky that my mom is going to cook again, this year. Our family is mostly vegetarian, so we usually have some alternative main course and loads of delicious sides. My mother always cooks a feast, except for one year when she was working, and my husband and I made the meal at my parents' house because we don't have space to host a sit down dinner at our place. 

Apparently the most memorable thing about that meal was the mess we made, especially if you ask my neat-freak Dad who puts your water glass in the dishwasher every time you walk away from it. Good thing they have a lot of glassware...

Okay, hubby and I are not so skilled at cleaning up, at least not to my parents' standards, but we get points for food that tastes good! My siblings have yet to even attempt to make a family dinner for a holiday, let alone a regular day, but nobody wants food poisoning, so they are off the hook, too. 

Next time that Mom can't cook the family feast we are all so very thankful for, we've decided we are going to order take out or make reservations at our local Buca di Beppo. Not only does the restaurant have a full, traditional Thanksgiving dinner menu especially for the holiday, but to please even the pickiest palettes, they will be offering their regular menu items as well! 

Buca Di Beppo's Thanksgiving Feast Party Pans with curbside pick-up available at most locations couldn't make serving your family and friends at home any easier. However, if you really want to make this holiday stress free and clean-up non-existent, dining in for your family style meal is the way to go. Plus, you get to enjoy the fun atmosphere in the vintage, Little Italy style setting and locations open at 11am so you can get started on getting stuffed bright and early!

When I was working full time managing a team, I hosted several group events at Buca Di Beppo and it was always the perfect place to have a meal that could please the widest variety of tastes and dietary restrictions. Everything is family-style, so you pass plates, take a little of everything, or only what you like, and you can go for seconds! If you take a look at their Party Pans, you will see their Thanksgiving Feasts, their classic Italian fare, as well as salads and entrees that cater to vegetarians and even gluten free items marked on the menu.

I have to admit, my mouth is watering over, the sides, which are what I LIVE for over Thanksgiving weekend. I'm liable to order extra portions, just so I can ensure leftovers. The roasted garlic mashed potatoes look amazing, and I would definitely go to town on the pumpkin pie! The cranberry sauce, made with the whole cranberries looks beautiful, too. Of course, I'm a big fan of their ravioli, and pretty much all of their vegetarian pastas, marinara and Alfredo sauces, salads, and desserts, too.

So whether you want to make Thanksgiving reservations at Buca Di Beppo or if you want to send your hubby to pick up Party Pans, hide in the kitchen, and transfer everything to your own serving plates to make it look like you cooked it yourself, this holiday can be effortlessly cooked to perfection, and stress-free. Just make the switcheroo from the take out containers when nobody is looking, and don't worry, everyone will be so busy being thankful for the good company, great food, and the fact that they didn't have to do the cooking or cleaning, no one will notice you sneaking the aluminum pans out the back door!

If you are planning on dining in at Buca Di Beppo with your friends and loved ones, be sure to make Thanksgiving reservations now, or call early to order your ready to serve food to go and please enjoy every minute with your families and friends this holiday. I know we will!!!
