You're busy. We understand; so is everyone else. And if you're really not feeling the whole "making Thanksgiving dinner" thing this year, or you want to save some sanity by ordering your ingredients online and getting them delivered to your door, local businesses are stepping up to deliver everything from full dinners to boxes of produce, turkeys, and spices. So you can spend more time doing literally anything except fighting the crowd for the last bag of cranberries at the grocery store.
Everything from the meal comes in a neat little package with Luke's Thanksgiving kits
. The kits serve 7-9 people and include a smoked and brined BN Ranch turkey, mashed sweet potatoes, classic stuffing, roasted Brussels sprouts, green bean casserole, and gravy. Everything is fully cooked and comes with reheating instructions. You can also order a la carte items, including Dungeness mac and cheese, Marla Bakery Parker House rolls, and Black Jet Bakery pies, or limited ingredients if you want to make food from scratch.
If you want a greater range of options but still don't want to cook, Bi-Rite has got you covered. You can order the food in-store, but it's easier to pre-order through Instacart
. The market has a huge selection of Thanksgiving foods
, including roast heritage turkey, bourbon sweet potato mash, jalapeno cornbread and chorizo stuffing, roasted Brussels sprouts with bacon and maple syrup, wild mushroom bread stuffing, porcini mushroom and marsala gravy, cranberry-tangerine and honey relish, pumpkin pie ice cream, and more. Of course, you also have access to the market's entirely inventory if you decide to cook. If you don't know what the hell to do, Bi-Rite is offering a Thanksgiving hotline for menu-planning and ordering questions (241-9760, select option 3).
The Dogpatch-based food delivery service definitely offers the most choice
for Thanksgivign meals. If you're cooking at home, you can order turkeys, produce, tofu "turkey" from Hodo Soy, organic butter and half and half, herbs and spices, and all the rest of the ingredients that you may need. In terms of prepared foods, this has the biggest selection of baked goods, pies, appetizers, cheeses, floral arrangements, and basically everything you need to throw a killer feast, including necessities like stuffing, gravy, and cranberry sauce. In the spirit of the season, you can also order items to be donated to the SF-Marin Food Bank.
