Just don't forget the pie
While traditionalists have been compiling grocery lists, making seating arrangements and tablescapes, sorting through time-honored recipes and picking up the very best ingredients for a special Thanksgiving meal, others focus solely on convenience.
According to Google Insights for Search, Texans, especially, are thankful for ease this Thanksgiving. Texas is the No. 1 state for "Thanksgiving to go" searches (up 15 percent from the holiday in 2010) and No. 2 for "order turkey" (up 20 percent over the past year).
But not only do we want the meal cooked for us: We want it delivered to our doorstep. Texas falls in the Top 5 for states that want "Thanksgiving delivery."
