Where’s the turkey?

21 Nov
Turkey on the Road

"I don't know about you but I'm going out to eat."

I can’t believe Turkey Day is almost here.  Where has 2011 gone?  Thanksgiving for many people means slaving away in the kitchen for two days, preparing special meals that have been handed down for generations.  This is all well and good and nothing beats a home cooked meal prepared with love.  But what have you learned about me so far?  I don’t cook.  And Thanksgiving is no exception.

Though I must confess that I will be enjoying a delicious home cooked meal this year, Cajun style, at my Grandma’s house in Louisiana.  If you have ever experienced Louisiana cuisine then you know what a treat it can be.  We will have the traditional turkey, lima beans, baked sweet potatoes and stuffing with rolls, but also on the agenda is my family’s  traditional foods-venison, seafood gumbo, red beans and rice and oyster dressing.  Even if I could cook, there is no way my attempt at this meal would ever taste as awesome as Grandma’s!  My mom is a close second, but even she swears Grandma is holding back on some secret ingredient.

For those of you who don’t have a grandma to cook for you or just don’t feel like cooking at all, you are in luck.  There are many restaurants in Austin that will be serving up that turkey this Thanksgiving Day.  I have compiled a list for you of places all over town that are sure to make your hassle free Thanksgiving Day special.

Happy Turkey Day everyone!
