Staying Local for Thanksgiving

Posted on: November 23, 2011

It’s the day before Thanksgiving.

I’ve got to get to Paul Roller’s kitchen to pick up my family’s holiday turkey and mashed potatoes.  From there I’m off to McNally’s Tavern on Germantown Avenue to pick up my carrot cake, expertly made by Meg McNally.  I ordered it when I went there for a lunch meeting last week.   I’ll probably stop by to see my nephew Patrick at Jonathan’s Best to get his suggestions on appetizers.  I’ll have to hit Baker Street before I head home to pick up the dozens of freshly baked snowflake rolls we ordered.

Robertson’s Florists should be delivering the beautiful centerpiece for our table sometime this afternoon.

I’m thankful for all of the great merchants along the Avenue in Chestnut Hill.  I’m thankful that I don’t have to cook this year because of all of the great merchants along the Avenue in Chestnut Hill.  The holidays are a wonderful time to support our local businesses.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!  Please take time to enjoy your family and friends and have a safe holiday.
