Everyone has a favorite thing about Thanksgiving – the butter turkey on the table, making a wish on the wishbone, putting too much whipped cream on the pumpkin pie. But no one’s favorite thing is cleaning up after the biggest meal of the year. This year, why not let the professionals handle the cooking and clean-up, while you relax and enjoy only the best parts.
