Autumn has arrived in Roselle, Illinois, and that means Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Prepping for the big holiday can be daunting, but here at Friendly Ford, we have some suggestions for how keep your sanity during this hectic season.
Take the family out
If you lack the space for entertaining but still want to gather with loved ones, Wildfire Restaurant has a solution for you. Stop in from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. this Thanksgiving Day and enjoy a full family-style spread, including spit-roasted turkey with all the fixings — even gluten-free options.
Gather loved ones at home
If you have the space but lack the time or the cooking know-how, Catering Sensation has options to fit your needs. Turkey, ham, and sides are prepared fresh here every day, including Thanksgiving. You can either stop by to pick up your food or schedule a delivery by or before 1:30 p.m.
If you’re just looking to give back this Thanksgiving, consider helping out with WACO’s 23rd annual food drive. It runs from Oct. 29 to Nov. 16, with opportunities to volunteer on Nov. 17 to sort out donations. Another way to give back is by participating in Roselle’s fifth annual Turkey Tango Trot 5K. This race will be held Thanksgiving morning at 8 a.m., with all proceeds kept in the community. It’s a great way to contribute locally — and to work up an appetite for the big meal.
