Don’t feel like cooking Thanksgiving meal? Eat out instead

A turkey with stuffing is the traditional Thanksgiving meal, but it can be time-consuming and even daunting for a novice cook. Luckily, lots of restaurants are willing to do that work for you. (LARRY CROWE / AP)

If you haven’t yet thought about your Thanksgiving meal, you could do this: Make a list, go to the grocery store, then start right now brining, peeling, chopping, slicing, sauteeing, baking, roasting and possibly even deep-fat frying, though be careful with that one.

Then follow it up with a whole lot of dish washing.

Or you could pick up the phone and make a reservation, or just get in your car and head out.

Here’s a list of some, but not all, of the local restaurants open on Thanksgiving; if you don’t see your favorite place here, it’s worth calling, since more and more eateries are staying open on Thanksgiving.
