Thanksgiving -- looking for interesting pre-made food

I will be traveling to the Lakeside/Union Pier area for Thanksgiving, and am looking to bring some good (preferably pre-made) Thanksgiving-oriented food from Chicago, other than just plain turkey. Any thoughts on where to get a good turkey cassoulet, maybe a turducken, or something else that might impress the crowd besides just plain old turkey.

Thanks for any thoughts on this.

  1. Sun Wah has offered a BYO turkey deal where you bring them a turkey and they'll prep and cook it Chinese barbecue style for a small fee. Nothing on their website about this year (although last year's info is still there) but give them a call.

      I recall reading about this in prior years. Thanks for the reminder. Unfortunately, I'm not sure the turkey will travel well to Michigan with me -- but given how much I love their duck, it might be worth a try!
