Thanksgiving Rpt: Whole Foods, Glick's Kosher Market, Upper Crust (pies)

Armed with 1/2 case of wine brought as checked luggage (Chalone Estate Chard, Klinker Brick Zin, Schlumberger House Red - all excellent and well under $20), I catered Thanksgiving dinner for 19 this year in my elderly mother in law's house in south PBC, without actually cooking a thing. We pre-shipped plasticware including those fake metal plastic utensils in order to minimize shopping on Wednesday. Turkey was superb-possibly the best I've ever had from Glick's Kosher Market in Delray - extrememly moist and flavorful. Accompanied by Glick's has several locations in the NY area as well - see their website. The sides all came from Whole Foods in Boca, who faxed me their menu 6 weeks previously. Highly recommend the mashed sweet potatoes, squash risotto, root vegetable medley (aquired taste for foodies only), chestnut-cornbread stuffing, and two salads on the regular menu: brasserie and heart of palm. 2 containers of Green bean cassarole was not our favorite and went uneaten. The pies we picked up early on Wednesday from an old time pie bakery - Upper Crust in Lake Worth on N. Dixie Highway. They won't accept phone preorders so we went early. Most of their pies were pre sold, but fortunately they had everything we wanted: Pumpkin (5/5 one of best ever), peach (fresh 5/5), pecan (4/5 - like NY Times cookbook recipe better, but it really was very good, dutch apple crumb(5/5), sour cream apple ( not my fav but very very good 4.5/5). we finished the evening with a "box" of Starbuck's coffee that was still hot after 4 hours. All the sides were microwaveable and the turkey came packaged in foil so it was easy in the oven and a very clean operation. We ate terrific leftovers for the rest of the weekend. Fabulous. Much better than any restaurant in my family's opinion.
