LA MESA -- Okay, let's agree that we all would love the Saturday Evening Post, Norman Rockwell Thanksgiving (see above). Loving family all scrubbed and nice. Turkey moist and brown and side dishes displaying the richness of America and our own cooking talents.
If you got this, flaunt it and stop reading. Good for you.
But in an unofficial and unscientific survey of residents of the Jewels of the Hill, La Mesa Today estimates that for roughly 52.56 percent of us, there are a few predictable clumps in the Thanksgiving gravy, including:
In sum, you get the picture.
The very good people of Bo-Beau Kitchen + Garden and Centifonti's Restaurant in La Mesa Village -- perhaps to avoid their own families -- have agreed to work this holiday. We have done the math and the money you will spend on the professionally prepared feast Bo-Beau or Centifonti's is offering is immensely less expensive than the home-cooked version that will be extruded from most amateur kitchens.
Seated comfortably at Bo-Beau, your guests will naturally keep the anti-Obama rants to themselves and, when the food is gone, you simply walk away from the table and the dishes and to cars that take everyone to their own homes. And dessert is included at both restaurants!
