Having Thanksgiving at your place but scared you might burn down the house? Or are you freaking out because you waited until the last minute to put together your Thanksgiving meal?

You can stop worrying, because this Thanksgiving there's a cornucopia of options for last-minute Thanksgiving meals without having to step foot in the kitchen.

While Whole Foods doesn’t deliver on Turkey Day, the organic supermarket does have Thanksgiving hours. Just check your local store for exact times.

Whole Foods is featuring everything from Thanksgiving dinners to wine selections and appetizers to complete your feast. Prices range from $39.99 for Thanksgiving turkey and sides for two people to $249.99 for a fully cooked organic turkey and sides for 12. If you’re not afraid of the kitchen, Whole Foods also offers raw turkeys. You can also switch out the turkey for a Thanksgiving ham.

Whole Foods isn’t the only destination for last-minute Thanksgiving meals. Omaha Steaks is combining the food that defines Thanksgiving with the sales of Black Friday by offering Turkey Day dishes at deep discounts. A 10-pound whole basted turkey, regularly priced at $84.99, is now going for $59.99. Need more of a complete meal and a little less turkey? Omaha Steaks’ turkey and trimmings deal features a 2-pound oven-roasted turkey break, two 12-ounce trays of green bean casserole, two 12-ounce trays of roasted garlic mashed potatoes and two 14-ounce trays of whipped sweet potatoes for $39.99 (regular price $90.00).

Omaha Steaks also has a 1.8-pound home-style roasted turkey breast for $14.99 (regular price $27.99) and a ham and turkey combo for $39.99 (regular price $65).

If you need your Omaha Steaks meal in time for Thanksgiving, it’s highly recommended you use the overnight delivery option, as express delivery might not make it in time. Overnight delivery is $39.99 while express delivery, which Omaha Steaks guarantees will be shipped to you in two to three business days, costs $19.99.

Another option for last-minute Thanksgiving turkeys is Mary’s Turkeys, which provides free-range, vegetarian-fed turkeys raised in California. Just click here to order a Mary’s Turkey from Kristina’s Natural Ranch Market. Prices range from $79.76 for an 8-to-10-pound, free-range turkey to $226 for a 14-to-20-pound heritage turkey. Overnight shipping prices are based on location.

Southern California-based supermarket Gelson’s is offering online ordering on Thanksgiving, but they also have store hours from 6:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Turkey Day for the most fervent procrastinators. Gelson’s offers everything from a sliced turkey breast dinner for two, which includes cornbread stuffing, mashed potatoes, vegetable medley, gravy, cranberry sauce, gingered yam soufflé and dinner rolls for $39.99 to a 12-serving jumbo turkey dinner for $169.99.
