Thanksgiving Dinner from GourmetStation - Tradition, Convenience & Good Food
Posted: November 15, 2012
Thanksgiving Day is the biggest day of the year for wine consumption – who would have thought! Reds and whites alike are enjoyed, including Riesling, Gewürztraminer and Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Zinfandel. Tawny Port, Tokaji and sweet Sherry always compliment desserts.
I wonder what the original Pilgrims might think about modern day Thanksgiving? Microwave ovens, foot ball events, cell phones and people living at the far ends of a huge country...sometimes preventing families from being together on holidays. What would they think about a service that lets these families connect through food gifts sent via a national delivery service. The future is here and the service is GourmetStation.
Thanksgiving Dinner Gift Delivered Nationally

When I was young I bucked tradition thinking it was boring, repetitive, etc. But as I get older and live in an inconsistent world, I see that the consistency of tradition is a good thing. So I’m with the program now!
We recently received a frantic call from one of our customers in the Southwest. We were about 2 hours from launching our Thanksgiving Dinner Gift home page and menu page. This customer thought perhaps we would not offer a Thanksgiving Dinner For Two this year. Her Mom had a debilitating disease that would not allow her freedom in the kitchen anymore. And Dad, well he just flat out does not cook. Mom and Dad live on the other end of the country from this customer, so there was no opportunity to pop in and whip up a delicious dinner for Mom & Dad. So our Thanksgiving Dinner Delivered to the Northeast saved the day. And it felt good to be able to help this family connect at this special time of year – with…our food!
So here’s how it works. The Thanksgiving dinner for two is complete with butternut squash soup, baguettes, smoked turkey breast (about 1.5 lbs.) dressing, gravy, oven roasted veggies & pumpkin pie. Heating tips are on the web and also included with the package, but they are very simple – Heat the soup on the stove top and the rest of the dinner heats in a 350 degree F oven over the period of about 70 minutes. That’s it! If you want to get fancy, we also recommend wine for turkey.
The only thing not included in our meal box is a football game – there are plenty of those on tv. Oh, we forgot to mention – go to the site and enter the promo code for Free Shipping.

Even though I keep my eyes tightly closed
Even though I huddle in my bed
Even though the first hour of my day is hectic
Even though our breakfast table never looks like
Even though I grumble and bemoan my fate
Happy Thanksgiving from the Team at GourmetStation
