However, for those looking to have a slightly less minimalist feast, there are other options to avoid hitting the supermarket.
Sites like Peapod offer Thanksgiving in-a-box options with turkey or even ham. Their site lists the items between $50 and $60 while places like Whole Foods have higher end options between $120 and $200.
But if you're not trying to cook, Sendik's is one of the many places that will cook up the meal for you and you just have to set the table and serve.
"We're all here to make sure everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving," said Jean Knoeck at Sendik's.
Their meal runs as low as $125 but Knoeck says that's not what most people come in for.
"Most people are signing up for the things they don't want to make like mashed potatoes or stuffing," Knoeck said. "It's the things people don't think they make well like turkey gravy."
It's a good thing too because some residents are looking for non-traditional holiday meals.
"I'm a disaster as a cook," said Ed Olson. "I tried eggs once and they turned into black cringes. Where can I get a partial Thanksgiving for three people?"
