A No-Fuss Feast

Cooking Thanksgiving dinner is not everyone's idea of a good time, and it can even lead to some serious disasters. Fortunately, many restaurants, grocery stores, and specialty retailers will do the work for you, offering complete heat-and-eat Thanksgiving feasts with all the fixings — in some cases, even shipping them right to your door. Here are 15 places where you can order Thanksgiving dinner without a side of stress.
