(Note: this is the 2011 list.  For 2014, see “Where to Order Thanksgiving Dinner 2014”)

If you don’t have time to cook Thanksgiving dinner, you can order complete Thanksgiving dinners to-go that are precooked.  Side dishes (and often pie) are included.  You just order, schedule a time for pick-up, then heat and serve these premade dinners.  Most grocery stores recommend ordering by November 21 or 22; most restaurants only need 24 hours for an order.  Here’s where you can order Thanksgiving dinner 2011 (click each for more details):

Though Aldi doesn’t offer pre-cooked dinners, it does have low prices, so we also took a look at the cost of a pulled-together Thanksgiving dinner from Aldi.
