I’m super excited to share about how you can celebrate a Thanksgiving dinner out on the town with a Buca di Beppo Thanksgiving! What you say!?
I’ve been working on a project just for you called The Essential Thanksgiving Planning Guide and it’s done! One of the chapters in this handy book(let) is about eating out for Thanksgiving.
Many may scoff at the idea of eating at a restaurant for the Thanksgiving holiday and maybe in their minds eating out is simply not done or not traditional…I say WHO CARES! I can tell you that over the years and years of Thanksgiving’s we’ve had, their have been MANY non traditional meals that we have spent with and without family. Of course there have also been traditional meals at home too…
My parents divorced when I was very young and I too was divorced when I was very young…before I met the Lord. Anyway..that’s a whole other story. I can tell you that having that one “traditional” Thanksgiving is hard to come by in seperated families. Not impossible, just hard. Having to share kids, parents and siblings…was crazy to say the least.
I’ve learned how to be very flexible on holidays. Now that I have grown children and grandchildren, things are even more complicated. Some years we can gather everyone and other years it’s just more difficult, with in laws and other extended family. Oh and add in that in laws are divorced that adds another dimension to gathering.
Don’t become depressed because you may not be able to have that “perfect” traditional meal at home that you see in the movies.
Have fun! Give Thanks!!
I am so thankful for restaurants like Buca di Beppo that serve a Thanksgiving dinner, because families are different!
There has been more than one occasion when I’ve tried to pull the family together for Thanksgiving and we just couldn’t make it happen. It’s sad, but we have to learn to be flexible. So with our big kids off at in laws, we’ve taken our younger kids out to dinner! For them it’s a super treat because we don’t dine out much, especially for a holiday! We’ve had SO much fun on these occasions!
Guess what? Hawaii Five O didn’t come and arrest us because we chose to eat out either! It was a blast and a blessing!
Right now is the time to make your Thanksgiving reservations at Buca di Beppo. They are serving up a deeelish traditional Thanksgiving Feast that includes the classics with a yummy Italian twist, such as slices of white meat turkey, home style gravy, roasted garlic mashed potatoes…to name a few! YUM! They will also be serving up their regular menu too Thanksgiving day.
Guess what else? You can order ahead of time for pick up! Ok…we have done this too and oooh it was wonderful! The story behind this is in The Essential Thanksgiving Planning Guide so I won’t spoil it for you, but like I said, we’ve had a lot of different holiday meals over the years. Just think, no dishes, no cooking and tons of fun.
You may have so much fun that you may make this a tradition in your own home.
Whether you eat out or eat in.. it takes just a little planning.
No matter what you do, be your own family!
Have fun, be thankful and celebrate!
I would LOVE to hear how YOU have celebrated Thanksgiving over the years.
