Believe it or not, but Thanksgiving is less than 2 weeks away and Christmas will be here before you know it. If you have family getting together for Thanksgiving dinner, you might want to think about dining out on that special day.

One of the biggest hurdles for preparing that Thanksgiving feast is the cost of everything you will need to put on a home cooked spread. Prices for turkeys alone have skyrocketed to more than $2.00 a pound. You will also find higher prices for everything else you need to prepare a spectacular dinner.

It might just be worth it to consider dining out this year. You will save time considering it takes a lot of effort to prepare the turkey and all the side dishes that are typically served with a family Thanksgiving meal. You will also save the clean up time that follows a massive home-cooked spread.

I get it. Fixing that special family feast full of love is special and lots of folks enjoy all the cooking and preparation that makes the day so special. And plenty of families share the tasks by each contributing some dishes to the feast. That's great and is traditionally what my family has always done. But for the past few years, we have eaten out and I am a big fan. You do need to plan ahead and make sure you can get a reservation at your favorite spot. Thousands of people hit the restaurants each Thanksgiving to dine out. I expect that number to grow this year with the high cost of groceries.

Just remember, it's all about enjoying time and fellowship with your loved ones.
