A Very Buca Thanksgiving

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Buca di Beppo® for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.


Welcome to November! We can move on from the spooky and scary to the thankful and grateful! Don't you love this time of the year? I do but the idea of hosting a large Thanksgiving get-together is a little overwhelming. Have you started your Thanksgiving dinner planning? 


  

Recently, when I was talking to my friend about our new "friendsgiving" dinner tradition we both said how much work this is really turning out to be. But then we found this -
Buca di Beppo Restaurant is OPEN for Thanksgiving lunch and dinner!!  Now, I am all about the planning but frankly this year has been crazy busy for us all and going to dinner to celebrate seems REALLY appealing!  


Looking for a casual and fun Thanksgiving lunch or dinner? Buca is perfect for that!  Buca opens at 11 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day and has delicious Italian dishes ready to serve you and your guests!  And YUM - have you had Buca before?  Oh goodness, soooo good!  

Buca di Beppo's authentic Italian dishes use only the finest and freshest ingredients, cooked to order and served family-style, making them perfect for sharing with family and friends. Hello - perfect for our "friendsgiving" meal!  Buca's diverse menu offers everything from tasty appetizers and crispy salads, to hearty entrĂ©es and decadent desserts. I hope that your house is close to your Buca because you will need one of those perfect Thanksgiving naps, no one leaves Buca hungry!


As we get older and our family gets more spread out we have found that we are building and choosing our own family even if not by blood.  And I will be honest, most of us are not big cooks so the idea of not slaving over the stove on Thanksgiving sounds amazing oh and not to mention NO DISHES TO WASH!!  I am pretty sure that my guests would agree with me.  Which means a Buca di Beppo Thanksgiving will work perfectly for us!


Here are the options for Thanksgiving Lunch and Dinner:

Traditional Turkey Dinner:
  • Sliced White Meat Turkey
  • Homestyle Gravy 
  • Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes
  • Spicy Italian Sausage Stuffing
  • Green Beans 
  • Cranberry Sauce 
  • Pumpkin Pie
Thanksgiving Feast To Go:
  • Sliced White Meat Turkey
  • Homestyle Gravy 
  • Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes
  • Spicy Italian Sausage Stuffing
  • Green Beans 
  • Cranberry Sauce 

If you feel like you still want to enjoy a Thanksgiving feast in your own home you can order lunch or dinner to go!  Another great way to get the group together with very little preparation and clean up.  Love that.  I think this year, we will go this route and have our guests bring their own favorite Thanksgiving desserts to share.  Delicious!  
 
Make your Thanksgiving reservations at one of the best restaurants for Thanksgiving lunch or dinner and Buca will make sure your holiday is festively fun. 

What traditions do you wait to create for your holiday meals?

  3. I love that they offer Thanksgiving to go! A great way to enjoy a Thanksgiving feast at home without all the prep and clean up! Very tempting.

  4. This sounds like a great option for that inevitable "second" Thanksgiving get-together that we have every year. We usually go to one side of the family's for dinner on Thanksgiving and then have another get-together for the other side the weekend after. I'd love to escape all the work, planning, and cleaning for the second celebration! lol

  16. We have never done Thanksgiving at a restaurant before but I can see the appeal. This year is crazy. I will have to ask my husband if he would consider it as that food looks wonderful.
