These San Antonio restaurants are taking orders for to-go Thanksgiving dinners right now

This year has been beyond stressful, which may explain why some of us just aren't up to cooking our own turkey and sides this Thanksgiving — especially since the gathering's likely to be smaller than usual.

Good thing plenty of local restaurants are willing to do the cooking for us. It can make for less stress and less mess. And hey, with all that extra time on our hands, we'll have plenty of opportunities to reflect on what we're really thankful for this season.
