Holiday Getaway: make this Thanksgiving a stress free zone.

As the Thanksgiving festivities rapidly approach, for the home cook this can mean a variety of not so festive things; complicated menu planning, navigating the frantic throngs of other shoppers at the grocery store, prepping and cooking the food, and then cleaning up after the fabulous feast has been consumed.

Just search the Internet and you will find countless websites offering tips and tricks for a stress free Thanksgiving.

Like most that will be hosting their holiday get-together this season, multi-tasking and juggling various projects to prepare for the onslaught of hungry guests can be a bit overwhelming and time consuming.

For those of you who would like to relax, and let someone else do the dirty work, many local restaurants will be providing family style buffet dinners that will take the pressure off, so you can spend good quality time with friends and family.
