I'll give making the sides myself some more thought...
I made all the sides with my sister last year and we picked up a turkey that we ordered a week or two ahead of time. Since we only had 1 oven it worked out perfectly. Cooking the turkey takes up the entire oven for hours and hours. Can probably prep and cook the sides you want in under 2 1/2 hours from start to finish with clean up included. Believe me the recipes are so simple.
