I would probably buy bits -n- pieces so I could make some of my own recipes. BUT getting a whole meal would be easier.

I would use the gift card to order the whole meal from Whole Foods!

I would definitely cook the turkey from Whole Foods and buy all the sides from Whole Foods. Honestly, I need a Thanksgiving break! I have cooked the dinner for over 30 years now. This would be a great break for me and besides, Whole Foods has the best sides . I just hope I win, thank you for all your great organic foods. Jessica Goodman

I would use the gift card to buy ingredients for my dinner and I would donate the balance to a Food Pantry.

I love to cook the turkey but not the rest, with so many guests, less to do is better!

I would buy some and make some for sure. It would certainly help to distress my wife, and her Mom for the big day. However best of all it would be awesome to provide all the best quality foods to her whole family and hopefully make them realize it's not only more healthy but much better tasting than what they normally eat.

I am a firm believer in healthy organic cooking and would love to share a Thanksgiving meal with my elderly parents and silings. What woud be more wonderful than a Whole Foods meal with family gathered around the table?

Several of my friends and I have already decided to come together for Thanksgiving. We have nowhere else to go other than the company of one another. Thus, we are ever-so-thankful for each other...a place to call "home". I consider these dear friends "My Tribe"...and with a $250 gift card, we would all stress less about making Thanksgiving perfect for each other. Instead, we can continue to focus on our gratitude for one another--which is perfect.

I would spend less time in the kitchen after purchasing ready made options. With that I extra time, I would sleep in, have real conversations with guests and go out on a family walk.

I live in Boston and I drive down to NYC to cook Thanksgiving dinner with my little brother. I have to either go shopping up here and keep everything really organized to keep the food fresh and undamaged on the drive down or he has to find a way to carry a turkey and a lot of groceries home on the subway. We usually end up splitting the list, but that doesn't always mean being able to get the quality we can depend on from a market like Whole Foods. Either way, it is ALWAYS stressful trying to organize shopping for a whole dinner in two different cities over phone and email and then convene on the big day to cook! Having this gift card would allow us to use the online ordering system to get some of our list done and use the rest to get the ingredients to make our favorite dishes. Our diverse group of friends and loved ones in NY have several food restrictions or requirements, and being able to assure that we have Whole Foods quality food (i.e. we know exactly what is in everything!) would be tremendous. Best of all, it would give us more time to enjoy the tradition of cooking together and being with the friends in NY who gather on the holiday and are as important as family to us.

Soon after we were married, my husband and I realized how much we miss Thanksgiving Left-Overs, so the day after Thanksgiving my husband puts a turkey on the grill and I make sides all day, one at a time. We call it "Fresh Leftovers" and it's our favorite part of the holiday! Ususally friends come by to watch football and share in whatever's cooked at the time. Additionally, my birthday is near Thanksgiving day. This year it falls on a work/school day, so I might even be able to pick up a birthday treat since we likely won't go out for dinner!

Recently my mom and her sister in law, helped make my home more homey...I would like to repay them by fixing a healthy Thanksgiving dinner and winning this contest would help alleviate the stress of the holidays.

I'd use $250 winnings to purchase all the ingredients at Whole Foods and make a fabulous dinner for my family and my girlfriend and her family who have hosted us at their house several times this spring and summer. It's my turn, help me make it a great event!

We had your pre-cooked dinner last year and it was delicious.

I love a no-brainer! I always buy a fresh, free-range turkey, et al, from Whole Foods for Thanksgiving. With the gift card, I'd splurge and upgrade to the organic! Fingers crossed!

My Mom and I would take the $250 gift card to Whole Foods and buy all of our Thanksgiving dinner. We would then travel to Mississippi and share the dinner with my sister and brothers. It would be a tremendous blessing and definitely stress free!!

Whole Foods prepared meals are the best around! With a growing guest list we have transitioned from complete homemade Thanksgiving dinners to ordering from Whole Foods for the past few years. We always get rave reviews. Knowing that the food is high quality and all natural makes a difference. I would use the $250 gift card to continue our tradition of ordering our turkey, vegetarian gravy and creamed spinach from Whole Foods and use any remaining balance to purchase ingredients for some of our homemade items or to provide food for another family in need. With about 25 friends and family this Thanksgiving, ordering the prepared food and not breaking the bank to feed everyone will really take the stress off!

For the holidays, I like to buy the best of everything and cook mostly all from scratch. I'd use that $250 to splurge on the pomegranates, pecans, chestnuts, dates...and all the other wonderful ingredients that make Thanksgiving dinner so special!

I would make one trip to the Berkeley Whole Foods store and purchase everything needed for Thanksgiving dinner, rather than going to the many stores I usually shop at to gather the ingredients for our annual Thanksgiving celebration.

This gift card would allow us to help my in-laws travel down to Florida to visit their granddaughter!

With a $250 gift card to Whole Foods I'd be able to make Thanksgiving dinner the only way I know how....healthy! There's nothing better than an organic free-range Turkey for thanksgiving dinner. Pick Me...Pick Me!
