Takeout Thanksgiving meals
A friend is laid up this year and won't be able to cook, so I've collected these recommendations for her from past threads on places that would do a take-out Thanksgiving dinner. Any updates, input on quality or other places to recommend? (At least one of these places I thought was closed but has an active website.) She's in Lynn but I'm recapping everything I found from he past few years in case it may help someone else. I linked to menus if I could find them, if there's no link, then I can't find anything about Thanksgiving menus on the site.

chris, DO remove that stoneham marty's catering. ugh.
For closeness to lynn, and from my experience with the tastiness of their sides, i do think she would do well with both whole foods and formaggio kitchen. But if she is buying a whole cooked turkey(i couldn't tell from your post if it's just her, or her family- needing th. dinner) i think she might have better luck getting a less cooked bird from formaggio because it's a smaller vendor. I would suggest that wherever she finally gets the dinner, she should talk with the provider and explain that she does not want the turkey overcooked. Were it me, i would give them the thigh temp i want(i prefer slightly pink.) because they will be cooking it with a thermometer anyway.
Doesn't Market Basket do a pre-cooked Thanksgiving spread? Never tried it, but I imagine it would be comparable to what Roche Brothers does... and probably at a lower price. Perhaps someone can speak from experience?
