The holidays in Sun Valley are unique. From the snow-covered peaks (and ski runs!) that surround the Wood River Valley, to the old-fashioned charm of the Sun Valley Village and the decidedly European feel of the Resort, Christmas in Sun Valley is straight out of a beloved picture book. I have spent more than 30 Christmases in Sun Valley and while I certainly appreciate all that the Resort does to keep current (our amazing snowmaking and grooming, the gorgeous Lodge remodel, The Spa, and new
Let’s face it. Many of us love the idea of preparing a delicious gourmet Thanksgiving feast that will be the talk of friends and family for years to come. In this scenario, all the main dishes, creative sides and favorites arrive piping hot at the table on cue. Nothing is burnt or undercooked or perhaps just a little too “creative.” The piecrust is homemade; the mashed potatoes are riced; the gravy is perfection. Then there’s reality for many of us. It’s hard to time dinner perfectly. It’s hard to prepare food to appeal to every palate. Perhaps your time would be better spent making the table beautiful, pouring a libation, dispensing charm and letting someone else do the cooking! Perhaps your time would be better spent enjoying your first turns on the mountain!
Let Sun Valley help you do more of this, and less cooking, on Thanksgiving. The food will be fantastic and you will have time to enjoy friends, family and the official start of the season!
Sun Valley to the rescue. Right now, you can place your order for a complete, homemade and delicious Thanksgiving meal at the Short Line Deli in the Sun Valley Village. Whether you would like to enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving meal at home, in a vacation condo, or at one of Sun Valley’s wonderful restaurants, you can’t go wrong.
“We are offering a whole pre-packaged holiday meal with portions guaranteed to provide leftovers,” said Matt Robinson, Short Line Deli and Konditorei Manager. “Whether you’re enjoying the holiday as a couple or with a large group, our Thanksgiving dinner can be tailored to the exact number of people you’re expecting.”
Stop by the Short Line Deli in the Sun Valley Village, or give them a call, to arrange for a piping hot, homemade Thanksgiving dinner to go
The food promises to be delicious and you can pick it up on Thanksgiving Day, piping hot and ready to serve. The dinner includes turkey meat (you can request white, dark, or both), creamy mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, mac ‘n’ cheese, stuffing, gravy, cranberry sauce, a fresh green salad and, of course, your choice of pies. It will be hard to pick between home-baked apple, pumpkin and pecan. If you are serving a large group, you may not have to choose!
“Just think,” Robinson further elaborated, “there are no pots and pans, no stress about timing your meal just right. You can focus on enjoying the day with an amazing meal with friends and family. Dinners can be picked-up in aluminum containers, straight from the oven and ready to eat. If you prefer, the meal can also be re-heated later in the day and it will still taste great.”
The Thanksgiving meal is a prix fixe of $40 per person before tax. Stop in to the Deli or the Konditorei in the Sun Valley Village, or call 208-622-2060 by Sunday, November 22, and let the pros do the rest. Pick up on Thanksgiving Day will be on the hour at noon, 1 p.m., 2 p.m., 3 p.m., 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. This will accommodate any Thanksgiving plans you may have, including enjoying opening day on Bald Mountain. It couldn’t be easier to eat like you have been up since dawn roasting that turkey.
If you are enjoying Sun Valley and staying in a condo like this Lodge Apartment, there is no easier way to enjoy a Thanksgiving feast “at home” than to let the Short Line Deli prepare the entire meal for your group
If you prefer to go out on Thanksgiving, there is still time to reserve your table at the lavish buffet in the Sun Valley Inn’s Limelight Room. The traditional and innovative buffet will feature classics like turkey and stuffing, along with Idaho favorites like lamb and duck. The buffet will be served starting at 4 p.m. and reservations are being accepted now. Please call 208-622-2800 to secure your spot.
The beautiful and rustic Trail Creek Cabin is also serving a Thanksgiving meal to remember. To book this one-of-a-kind venue, please call 208-622-2019.
Some of the best holiday memories center around the dinner table, whether that dinner is served in a restaurant, is taken out, or is made from scratch. Even if your middle name is “Ina” or “Martha”, a little help on a major holiday is always a good idea. The weeks to come will be full of cheer and chances to entertain, share meals and spend a lot of quality time in the kitchen. Why not let someone else take care of you – and your guests – this Thanksgiving.
