In my family, every Thanksgiving gathering comes with a last-minute run to the grocery store for some essential item that was forgotten. I've learned to listen to the tone of voice that comes from the kitchen, and I can almost always tell when the cooks notice something is missing.

So, what are our options going to be this Thanksgiving in Grand Junction? Will there be a chance of running to the store for something you need at the last minute? Yes, indeed.
