christmas chucky

Hope everyone had a nice Christmas! Ours was low key, and not much went on except for the cooking of the turducken. The butcher told me it would take 8-10 hours to cook, but in reality it only took 4 hours. Good thing I checked the sucker!

It kind of looks like a big ham, doesn’t it?
Here’s where the magic is:

Layers of chicken, duck, turkey, and wild rice stuffing. It was kind of hard to slice and keep pretty. I think it was okay but not incredibly delicious. Peter really liked it, and I think my brother liked it, too. He is the reason we got the turducken, after all. But we had a pleasant dinner, and my 90-year-old father even made it out of the house (and with his pants on!) to come over for dinner.

    The turducken sounds crazy! Hope you enjoyed the holidays. (Do you have snow by the way? All we got was pouring rain…)

    i was totally assuming you hosted a pantsless george so i’m a little disappointed to hear that!
    i’m also a little disappointed in the turducken. i thought you would see an entire bird / inside an entire bird / inside an entire birds. not just the MEAT from said birds. how boring!

    As a somewhat repentant meat-o-phile, that looks delicious. Happy holidays!

    I keep hearing that turducken is interesting…but not particularly delicious. Just something very different and cool in the technical sense. I’d be interested to try some, sometime, but am holding off on actually “making” one of them myself. That one looks really good, though!
