If the idea of brining your own turkey or bringing a made-from-scratch dish to pass isn't worth the hassle (or gamble, if cooking isn't your thing), look to these eight restaurants catering to the cooking impaired and time-crunched by offering Thanksgiving dishes to-go.

When Howard Brown first decided to raise money to provide turkey dinners for hungry families at his church, the Christ Unity Church on the South Side, he started small, with a goal to raise about $500 to buy 40 turkeys. With the help of his fellow students at Roosevelt University, Brown has raised nearly $1,900, almost four times his original goal, in only two weeks. Through a program he called Swipe to Wipe Out Hunger, students were able to donate money by swiping their meal plan cards in their cafeteria to donate their flex dollars, money that would normally be lost if it isn't used up by the end of the school year.

If you've ever stared down a raw turkey in your kitchen sink, dining out for Thanksgiving may have crossed your mind. Some of us can't simply stroll out of the grocery store, into the kitchen and whip up an entire holiday meal that does justice to this month's cover of Food & Wine magazine. And frankly, some of us don't really want to. If you're seeking a twist on the classics, some global flair, or you just want someone else to take care of Thanksgiving this year, take your pick from this list of turkey masters.

I hate the holidays.    Ok, let me clarify. I hate the feeling that the holidays bring. That hopelessness that comes from never having enough money to give stuff to the people you love. The unsettled feeling of realizing that feeling inferior because you can't afford things is a messed-up outlook on the world. Ugly sweaters and the people who insist on throwing parties to celebrate them. It's all annoying. I'll admit that the "spirit of the season" never really affected me ... that is, until this past Thanksgiving.

So while you're off enjoying a few servings of dark meat, I'll be off making turkey sandwiches, enchiladas, pot pies, salads and my recreation of those KFC famous bowls--with turkey.

Maggie Daley passed away on Thanksgiving Day. She had been the woman behind former Mayor Richard M. Daley during his 22 years in office. As sitting Mayor Emanuel said, "While Mayor Daley served as head of the city, Maggie was its heart. " The soft, caring core to a powerful machine. We could learn a lot from Maggie Daley. The position of first lady is not something that we the people vote for, but she's just as important as the official second-in-command. She's the woman who's there when times are rough and stresses are high.

Lamorne Morris says everyone on "New Girl" breaks character while filming Fox's hit sitcom. But the Chicago native who plays even-keeled Winston cracks up the most. "Whenever Jake and Max have a conversation, I don't want to be in that scene. I'm ruining the take because it is so hysterical...," Morris said of his co-stars, Max Greenfield and Chicago native Jake Johnson, who with Morris play the three male roommates to Zooey Deschanel's quirky Jess. Morris said that the cast does get serious, and that's when he has to straighten up. "After Hour 14 [of filming]
