How would your holiday season improve if you could score chef-created turkey and dressing without lifting a finger?
For the past five months, I’ve lived in a spare hotel next to the Dallas County Appraisal District offices during which I “celebrated” July 4, Labor Day, Halloween, and now Thanksgiving. While I have a kitchen in my 300 square feet, it’s hardly a “cook’s dream,” nor is there room service and only weekly cleaning. It’s a sacrifice I was willing to make to secure my Penthouse Plunge project. But I will be quite relieved to move into my half of the Penthouse on December 3.
All this got me thinking of the best way to spend a holiday rife with huge cooking expectations. The answer was to outsource it. Fire-up the room service menu and order in. In Dallas’ tony hotel/condo projects, I daresay you could send recipes and be rewarded with all your favorites, complete with place settings, without ever having to run a dishwasher. I mean the fridge would still be full – you don’t want to pay hotel booze prices – but that’s a small detail in the grand scheme.
In this crème de la turkey category there are the Ritz Residences and The Mansion on Turtle Creek Residences. Units in both will cost you a bundle of cabbage but at least they’ll also cook it and deliver it.
