Celebrating Thanksgiving: Three Ways to Destress
Thanksgiving this year may look a little different, but it is still a perfect time to give thanks and connect with close family and friends.
The traditions of previous years may be altered, but you can still enjoy this season of gratitude.
We are happy to share some suggestions to keep the spirit of Thanksgiving alive and thriving:
- Free Yourself from the Kitchen: If you’re looking to focus your energy on fully connecting with the small circle of family around the table, try ordering out for your full Thanksgiving feast. B&M offers two excellent full Thanksgiving meal options that will keep you free from the kitchen and allow the normal “is the turkey overdone” stress to wither away. Want to still make your own turkey, but not feeling the side dish prep? Ordering all your family’s favorite traditional dishes is another stress-free option that allows you to focus on the true spirit of Thanksgiving.
- Scaling Back: No doubt, most guest lists are going to look a little shorter this year. Consider this a perfect opportunity to think outside the box with your Thanksgiving menu. Although the traditional turkey day feast can be ready to roll thanks to B&M, this year can be a time to dial in your menu and make things cozier. Cooking up drumsticks or a turkey breast instead of a full bird can help you scale back and keep things simple by adding a few delicious and different sides like bacon-wrapped scallops or stuffed mushrooms.
- Give Back to Those in Need: Thanksgiving is a time of gratitude for what you have and for those around you, but it can act as a time to give back to others too. With 2020 being a hard hit for so many in our communities, donating to organizations that support those without can be extremely powerful. Know of a specific family in need this Thanksgiving that you would like to help? You can donate a B&M Gift Card. The spirit of Thanksgiving is one that has expanded in meaning thanks to 2020, and supporting others is a great way to make peace with a stressful year.
