What are we most grateful for on Thanksgiving Day? The food to stuff our face with, of course. But is that all? Where are your manners? Haven't you forgotten the host or chef who makes the feasting possible? If you are the considerate cook in your family who each year labors away in the kitchen for seven hours (or more) to prep for a delectable Thanksgiving dinner, we give you our sincerest salute. You have made our endless feasting and resulting acid reflux possible. But may we suggest you take a break from cooking this year and consider Thanksgiving meal delivery?

We’re not insinuating that your food tastes bad. It is a holiday all about appreciation, after all. But you can still be the bona fide host who gathers everyone together, only this year, you can shake off the weight of over-strategizing on grocery shopping, seasoning preparation, oven coordination, and dish reheating—as if you’re readying for war—because a food delivery service will bring an entire pre-made feast to your door. You’ll get all the classics for the big day, from sides to pumpkin pie to turkey, minus the cleanup, plus extra time in the great company of family or friends, or Thanksgiving movies and shows.

Just think about it. And preview your Thanksgiving nourishment with these 16 meal delivery options below. Why not relax a little and indulge in a Thanksgiving spread that is only a click away? You might need to get creative with the oven space, but honestly, it's a lot easier to just pop the meals in and then dig in. One more thing to be thankful for.
