Depends on where you're staying.

There was a recent thread about options in Poipu.

If you're staying on the south shore I agree with Smitty - Plantation Gardens

We love plantation gardens, methinks you all have given us an idea, since we just had Erica's birthday dinner at the Beach House last month.

If you are staying in a condo, Safeway, Foodland and Times Supermarket all have great holiday meals all prepared, all you have to do is reheat them.

We usually kick-up the side dishes like the stuffing, gravy and veggies by adding in extra spices or some years we just get the turkey pre-done and do all the sides from scratch.

Again if you're staying in a condo, agree that T-Day dinner at "home" is always the coziest and have always just gotten a pre-cooked turkey from one of the grocery stores.

HOWEVER, if you are really really lucky, the little market by the yellow submarine (and yes, Janet, I still can't get the name right) offers smoked turkey by the piece to die for! Pair that with their smoked baked potatoes and you've got the best T-Day dinner yet!

Barb:

Is that place you refer to next to the yellow submarine the Kukuiula Store?

ML:

If it is Kukuiula Store, it is located at 2827 Poipu Rd in Koloa.

If interested in the turkey Barb mentions, give the store a call at 808-742-1601 to see if will still have the turkey.

I like a buffet like the Hyatt offers for Thanksgiving dinner if going to a restaurant Once we went to a place like Plantation Gardens and they put the amount of turkey and sides on the plate and brought it to you. Not enough of favorite food and too much of things not wanted. Nice to have the chef carve white or dark meat in front of you and add dishes you like, or the ability to go back for seconds at a buffet.

Sorry but who wants to cook (or clean up after) Thanksgiving dinner in one's condo? I don't even like to do it at home (but am) but the fun of being on vacation is to go out for special events.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone, and may your dishes be few!
