Happy Turducken Day!


Looks good, huh? For any of you guys and gals who watched John Madden broadcasting the Thanksgiving football games, you know what a turducken is. If you don't, boy are you in for a treat.
Turducken is a holiday masterpiece that includes a semi-boneless turkey stuffed with a deboned chicken that's stuffed with a deboned duck breast. Triple-bird-alicious. The best Turducken you'll find are those from Louisiana-based Cajun Grocer. They offer five different 15-lbs Turduckens with either cornbread stuffing, seafood kambalaya, cornbread/rice dressing, creole sausage, or plain (veggies only). They also offer 4-lbs Turducken Rolls with either cornbread or pork sausage. It's the Thanksgiving Ménage à trois of meals.
Miss M and I are going to see my folks this holiday and there's NO CHANCE Mama Big City would make one of these. We'll have fun though hanging with the whole fam, especially my two nephews and my niece, who LOVE Miss M and only live 30 minutes from my parents. They even invited us over for a sleep over! Fun!
A log of the single parent posts I've read talk about starting your own new holiday traditions post divorce. Turducken is now my new tradition. The Ex thought was disgusting (maybe, but isn't Thanksgiving all about gratitude through over indulgence??? Spoken like a true man, I know) The second weekend after Thanksgiving I won't have Miss M, so all my friends are coming over for the first annual Turducken Holiday Feast. Kind of like UFC # whatever, but with a little less blood :)
What fun new Thanksgiving ideas have you come up with as single parents? Would love to hear them!
I'll try to post while we're gone, but Mama and Papa Big City have a computer from 1972. Might be tough. If you don't hear from me, HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!

I've heard of turducken and would love to try it one of these days. I have enough trouble getting my kids to eat period, so I won't be throwing a turducken in the mix just yet. Have some for me!

So you've hopped on the Turducken bus, too.

I just can't eat three birds morphed into one. Still trying to wrap my brain around that concept.

Yu-um! Hope you have a great T-Day.

BTW: I love your Website for the Soul. I read a few great buddhist writers during the last couple years. Pema Chodron is a fav, but so is Alan Watts (I swing both ways- Tibetan and Zen- lol).

Turduken makes me gag.

Did they HAVE computers in 1972?

Kidding. There was that great film with Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn. Late 50s. (?) At least your parents computer isn't that old.

Happy Turduken!
