Thanksgiving To-Go: How to Enjoy Thanksgiving at Home

Even if you can’t travel to be with loved ones this year, that doesn’t mean Thanksgiving is canceled. Whether you’re celebrating with your immediate family or your pandemic pod, you can still give thanks, wear cozy sweaters, and eat way too much turkey and stuffing.

If you don’t want to expend much effort cooking a huge feast for just a few, though, Ruth’s Chris Steak House can help. Our complete Thanksgiving Turkey Dinner To-Go (available for as few as four adults) is the perfect solution for enjoying a holiday meal without the hassle. In addition to placing your Thanksgiving carry-out order on time — all orders must be placed online and paid in full by Tuesday, November 24 at 12 noon – here are some other tips for making the most of a low-key Turkey Day.

Order Thanksgiving Dinner from Ruth’s Chris

A special meal is the ultimate hallmark of Thanksgiving, and Ruth’s Chris is here to help you savor one this year. When you order our Thanksgiving dinner for four, all you have to do is pick it up, reheat (we’ll provide instructions), and relax. With one bite of our Roasted Turkey and homemade gravy, you’ll feel like you’re back at Grandma’s house for the holidays.

Our Thanksgiving to-go dinner meal includes your choice of salad (Caesar or Steak House Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette), roasted turkey (half breast portion), homemade gravy, traditional cranberry relish, sausage-herb stuffing and your choice of two family-style sides. Choose from Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Creamed Spinach, Sweet Potato Casserole or Green Beans with Roasted Garlic.

But if you don’t want to forsake your mother’s impeccable turkey preparation, you can order any of our Sides to Go instead of the full package to add to your meal at home.

Finally, no Thanksgiving is complete without an autumn dessert. That’s why we’ve created a pumpkin cheesecake as the finale for our to-go meal, so you can end your evening on a sweet note. Our Thanksgiving meal for four comes with four individual pumpkin cheesecakes.

Decorate for Yourself

Get into the holiday spirit by adorning your home with fall decorations, regardless of whether or not anyone else will see it. An autumn-themed tablecloth and cornucopia centerpiece can easily transform your table for Thanksgiving. Other touches like fall wreaths, pumpkins and gourds, and seasonal bouquets will make you feel extra festive. Add even more ambiance by lighting a candle in a classic fall scent like apple cinnamon or pumpkin spice.

Practice as Many Traditions as Possible—and Start New Ones

Although the crowds will be absent, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and football games will go on. If you normally tune in, watching will remind you that it’s a special day. And since you ordered your Thanksgiving dinner from Ruth’s Chris instead of cooking it yourself, you’ll have tons of free time to spend creating new traditions. Take a walk outside and step on some delightfully crunchy leaves, make turkey-related crafts with the kids, or play a board game together. When Thanksgiving returns to normal over the next couple years, you may find that some of these new traditions stick with you!

Connect with People You’re Thankful for

It’s is the reason for the season, right? By now, you’re likely a pro at getting everyone together over Zoom. Make sure you also take a moment to call or text your older relatives who might not have access to a webcam. The important thing is that you’re connecting with family—or your chosen family—however possible.
