I'm doing it

I'm making my own turducken. I'll debone to duck and the chicken myself, but I ordered a debonded turkey from Paulina Meat Market.

I'll pick up the turkey next Wednesday and put it all together Thursday afternoon with the help of Charlie. The turducken has always scared Rory to some extend and having her help me put it together would probably be a bad idea. I'm going more traditional with the stuffing, i.e. onions, celery, sage, than Cajun.

It won't be as pretty as the one I get from Cajun Grocer, I'll split the turkey down the breast and sew it up. but it will hopefully be just as tasty. I will be sure to keep everyone updated here to let you all know how it goes.

Also, my apologies for not posting more, I don't have any great excuses. I have actually cooked a handful of new things lately but just haven't been writing as much. It might have to do with the stack of 15 contributed pieces sitting on my desk that need to be edited.

Also, Thanksgiving was good. My mom, dad and sister joined the future in laws up in Evanston. I made the Cauliflower Gratin that I mad last year and it was a lot of fun.
