Thanksgiving Day
It’s a holiday! If you’re not up to snuff on cooking a turkey or just don’t feel like making Thanksgiving dinner, fear not! We previously posted about some businesses offering to cater your home meals.

However, if you do feel like trying your hand at roasting that big bird (no, not the tall yellow guy from the kids tv show), we recommend you pick up a free range turkey from The Butcher of Kingsville. These turkeys range anywhere from 10-25lbs and are fresh, not frozen. They are also steroid, hormone and antibiotic free!

Orders for everything are filling up fast so we recommend ordering yours ASAP. As always, tell them WindsorEats sent you!
