6 Reasons to Celebrate the Holiday at the Feed Mill
Thanksgiving is a time to count your blessings, but it’s hard to feel gratitude if you’re frazzled and stressed.
Preparing the Thanksgiving meal can be a daunting task. The monumental effort it takes to feed a crowd means the day is less of a relaxing holiday and more of kitchen warfare.
However, it doesn’t have to be that way. The Feed Mill Restaurant is offering a Thanksgiving Day Buffet from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 28, 2019.
The meal will feature grilled smoked whole turkey breast, grilled smoked pork loin, mashed potatoes and gravy, homemade stuffing, vegetables, a salad bar, and various desserts.
No RSVPs are required and carry-outs are available. The Thanksgiving Day Buffet is $13.95 for adults and $6.95 for children 10 and younger. Kids and toddlers 3 and younger eat free.
To make this year’s Turkey-Day a relaxing one, here are 6 reasons The Feed Mill should be your Thanksgiving destination.
1 – Avoid pre-holiday grocery shopping hassle
You know the drill – you write your massive Thanksgiving grocery shopping list and head to the store to fight crowds and crowded aisles. Your final price tag climbs as the register receipt grows longer and longer.
Once home, you discover you’ve forgotten butter. So you make another run to the store. You then find your pantry is missing cranberry sauce, so it’s yet another trip to the store.
Enjoying The Feed Mill’s Thanksgiving Day Buffet means you don’t have to worry about your grocery list at all.
2 – Sleep in or Watch a Parade
There’s no need to get up in the wee hours of the morning to put your turkey in the oven if you’re eating at The Feed Mill.
Forget figuring out how long it takes to defrost the bird. Sleep in and be well-rested to enjoy the holiday.
Or turn on the TV and enjoy watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
3 – Don’t Worry About Oven or Fridge Space
Will the green bean casserole fit in the oven next to the turkey? What if the rolls also need oven time.
Figuring out when to cook dishes and if they’ll all fit in the oven can be a logistical nightmare. Cooking your Thanksgiving meal and making sure all dishes are warm and ready at mealtime is a complex process.
Even figuring out where to store food in the refrigerator can take a master puzzler to work out. Stop cramming, stacking, fretting and finagling your feast. Let The Feed Mill Resturant take the worry out of Thanksgiving.
4 – What Clean Up?
The meal is done, the tryptophan is kicking in and all you want to do is take a post-dinner nap. But piles of dirty dishes and mounds of messy cutlery await.
Cleaning up after the Thanksgiving meal can almost be as monumental of a task as making the food. Drying out your hands scrubbing pots in hot soapy water isn’t most people’s idea of a relaxing holiday.
At The Feed Mill’s Thanksgiving Day Buffet, you can enjoy the meal, and then leave the clean up to us.
5 – No Need to Be Lonely
The holidays can be tough for those whose family are far away or individuals who have no close relatives. Isolation is a common holiday feeling.
Empty nesters, the elderly or those who are grieving can be especially hard-hit with loneliness at Thanksgiving.
The best way to cope with loneliness is to seek company. The Feed Mill’s Thanksgiving Day Buffet is the perfect place to celebrate the holiday surrounded by friends and fellow community members.
6 – The Pilgrims Would Do It
Hard work and hardship are synonymous with the pilgrims. The endured long sea voyages, illness, harsh winters, poor harvests and the all-around toughness of life on a new continent in the 1600s.
Child mortality was high and life expectancy was low. The life of a pilgrim was tough.
If the capability existed in the 1600s for them to enjoy a Thanksgiving Day Buffet at The Feed Mill, you know they’d capitalize on it.
Enjoy the holiday season and let your friends at The Feed Mill do the cooking. Join us Thanksgiving Day!
