Luckily, throughout the Philadelphia region, there’s more than a few places that are willing to do the cooking for you. And all you have to do is heat it up and enjoy a nice Thanksgiving meal in the comfort of your own home. Heck, there’s at least one that’ll present your holiday meal for pickup hot and ready to eat — no oven work necessary.
