Lakesiders have so many options for a Thanksgiving day meal that it almost doesn’t make sense to cook and face the mountain of dishes afterward.
But if you do decide to do it at home, order your turkey now from Puritan Poultry, 765-4399, which also carries various holiday groceries. Also check out Pancho’s Deli-Market for holiday items, both fresh and boxed. Pick up cheeses and wines at La Vid, next to the Waffle House, (376)108-1887, and order your pies and cakes from chefs Georgina and Peter, 765-4412 or pick up their wares at the Farmer’s Market Tuesday at La Huerta Events in West Ajijic.
But if you just want the culinary treat without the hassle, here are some options the Reporter recommends to fit every purse and appetite.
