No matter what type of meal you’re planning for Thanksgiving, why not give yourself a helping hand this year?Skip the overcrowded stores and the stress that goes along with them, and try these Thanksgiving-themed meal kits instead. From simple to elaborate feasts, these three solutions can make your holiday a whole lot easier!

Blue Apron 

This well-known brand is offering a Southern-inspired Thanksgiving Meal Prep Feast and a mix and match option with a pork roast and other sides. The traditional feast serves up a boneless, spiced turkey breast, mashed potatoes with pimento cheese, sage-infused gravy, roasted carrots drizzled with ginger syrup, collard greens braised in a mushroom sauce, and a cheesy cornbread. Saving the best for last, dessert is a peanut-glazed apple and persimmon crumble.

If turkey’s not really your thing, the mix and match option offers a spiced pork roast entrée instead. The deadline to order is Tuesday, November 16.


The company’s Thanksgiving Feast is back this year, and available for both the traditional turkey holiday and Friendsgiving alike. There are two choices available: the first, for a smaller group of four to six includes a peppercorn-crusted beef tenderloin dinner with a sherry thyme jus, while the second, larger meal for eight to ten guests features a roast turkey and classic gravy with a garlic herb butter rub. Sides for both options include creamy mashed potatoes with garlic and sour cream, ciabatta stuffing with chicken sausage and cranberries, smoky maple brussels sprouts with lemon.

No matter the group size, an apple ginger crisp with cinnamon pecan crumble will satisfy your sweet tooth for dessert. Open to members and non-members alike, the deadline to order is Thursday, November 19.

Martha & Marley Spoon 

If you’re not familiar with Martha & Marley Spoon, you can easily guess this meal subscription service belongs to the doyenne of domesticity, Martha Stewart. There’s an option for either six to eight guests, or a larger one for eight to ten.

This do-it-yourself plan includes ingredients and recipes for your choice of an appetizer, three side dishes and a dessert. The holiday side dishes feature Martha’s classic stuffing with dried cherries and fresh herbs, cream cheese mashed potatoes, honey-glazed roasted vegetables, and parmesan-thyme biscuits.

Dessert features a most decadent cream cheese-swirled pumpkin pie with chocolate shortbread crust and a Pink Lady apple crisp. The deadline to place an order is Wednesday, November 18.

We all deserve a break this year. Try shaking it up by spending less time in the kitchen and more time with the ones you love. Happy Stress-Free Thanksgiving!!
