Thanksgiving in Englewood/Port Charlotte

Hi,

Have just booked to be back in our wonderful Rotonda paradise for last week of Nov/first week in Dec. Will obviously be there over Thanksgiving. Not sure whether to order something in and just relax around the villa/pool and spa, or go out to a local restaurant? Any views would be most welcome together with any recommendations from locals who may now of special deals that restaurants are offering.

Thanks

Hey Rosie, and welcome back!

Although it might not be very "romantic" or "traditional", Publix supermarkets offers a completely prepared Thanksgiving dinner. All you have to do is re-heat everything and it's like you made it all yourself.

You must order everything in advance at the deli department, but a week or so would be sufficient. You choose the size of the turkey, and you select all the sides, and even the bakery items and desserts. They box everything all up for you and off you go.

We have served them before when we have a housefull of guests and no one wants to have to spend the entire day in the kitchen. Everything comes in disposable containers, making clean-up a breeze as well. If they did not see you bring it into the house, everyone would think that you did all that work yourself!

Whatever you choose to do, enjoy!

Hope your Thanksgiving dinner goes well and you have a great time. We have just received info that our celebrations for Thanksgiving will held in our Club House. Turkey cooked and prepared by club house, all guests to bring in side dishes. And Enjoy!!!!Sounds like a 'Pot luck'kind of supper. We have been to 'Pot lucks' in Venice before and they are great. It is a fantastic way of meeting everyone. Really looking forward to it.

Janet,

Thanks for this. That sounds great and I hope you enjoy. We are still undecided what we will do, but no doubt decide over next week or so.

Hope all is going well in your new home and that you are enjoying all the decorating! It is great isn't it? Hopefully the weather will still hold until we get there - but to be honest just as long as we get a few sunny hours away from the grey cloud of Northern IReland, we will be happy!
