GREEN BAY − Not many things beat the aroma inside a house when Thanksgiving dinner is being prepared. The smells of chopped celery and onions for the stuffing, a fresh baked pumpkin pie or, in some cases, the roasted turkey, spread out to every room.
But, a common adage made famous by Spider-Man’s Uncle Ben comes to mind: With a great dinner comes a great responsibility, ie, doing dishes.
For those who want to avoid the stress that might come with preparing such a feast, here are some restaurants that offer a meal for the holiday that is quickly approaching on Nov. 24.
