If you so choose to omit the bird, enjoy all the sides including add-ons like black truffle mac and cheese (excuse us while we drool) and chocolate chip cookies by the dozen. And if you're picking up these to-go meals for the whole family, Baltaire has backed you up with instructions and equipment to make you look like an experienced host (wink, wink)
