Thanksgiving Dinner Options in the Upper Valley

Who's cooking this year?

Thanksgiving is a multi-day affair for me. Before I even cook, I clean the house, plan the menu and shopping list, shop, unpack the shopping, rearrange the fridge to fit the food from shopping, haul out the roasting pan and serving dishes, and take some Motrin for my back.

I prep and cook what I can a day or two before. I use my crockpots (yes, plural) because like most people I only have ONE stove yet everything needs to be in that darn oven! On Thanksgiving morning, I start early, cooking and cleaning all day. I do love it (my back does not), but it is a major undertaking. 

What about you? Not up for cooking this year?

Check out these Upper Valley options!

Pine at Hanover Inn

Cider-brined turkey, garlic potato puree, and cinnamon chutney- yum! Just a few of the delicious items Pine is creating this Thanksgiving.

I checked out their ordering page- very easy!

While they aren't doing roasted turkey, check out their Thanksgiving sides and pies! I've been meaning to check this place out. The hard cider bar is right up my alley and after reading their Thanksgiving line-up, I don't know I can't wait much longer. 

The Apple Cranberry Crumble with heirloom apples and poached Vermont cranberries with cardamom crumble topping sounds incredible!
Preorder by November 14th for pickup November 21st or 22nd


Common Man 


Common Man is offering a full, traditional meal to-go for Thanksgiving this year. The maple roasted butternut squash and cinnamon cream for the pumpkin pie have me tempted!
