Happy Turkey Day!

When asked about Thanksgiving dinner, Jimmy Fallon quipped, “A new survey found 80 percent of men claim they help cook Thanksgiving dinner. Which makes sense, when you hear them consider saying ‘That smells good’ to be helping.” 

While many opt to cook the big bird and bolster it with sides held dear in the family recipe box for decades, some of us don’t relish conjuring up cranberries pummeled with our own hands to serve in Grandma’s crystal compote. Nor do we want to open four cans of French-style green beans to mix with mushroom soup and dried onions to add Cousin Billy’s absolute favorite dish to the table.

Although Clubhouse buffet tables won’t be serving as groaning boards for every imaginable feast treat this Thanksgiving, our excellent culinary team can save your day. The Clubhouse is offering salads, soups, squash, turkey breast, ham, mashed potatoes with gravy, garlicky green beans, sweet potatoes, roasted asparagus, and yeast rolls, all for take-out.

Save room for dessert – your choice of a big old-fashioned apple, pecan, or pumpkin pie. Worried about serving your fancy dinner in mundane aluminum trays? No frets, Clubhouse dishes will come in pretty bowls and platters. Of course, you can always transfer food to your own dishes and claim gourmet glory.

The full menu and pricing are on the POA website, www.bigcanoepoa.orgThe Clubhouse will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, but your order can be picked up on Wednesday, November 25 between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.

Please email your orders to Dot Grogan at dgrogan@bigcanoepoa.org or call her at (706) 268-2420. Orders must be placed no later than 10:00 a.m., Friday, November 20.

Get your fat pants ready!
