***just in case you didn't feel fat enough, try TURDUCKEN!!!!****

Tuesday, November 20, 2012

I wanted to have a fun blog to ring in Thanksgiving emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon and upon looking up some ideas, I came across what just may be the most disgusting, fattening, unappetizing thing I have ever seen.


Now I must apologize if I offend anyone that intends to celebrate with this amazingly akward meal. I just never thought anyone would try to make Thanksgiving any more arterie clogging than it already is. For those of you who don't know, the turducken originated in Louisiana. A de-boned turkey is stuffed with a duck, which is stuffed with a chicken and the remaining cavity of the turkey is then filled with stuffing/dressing and sealed shut and baked. I have no more words to express how I feel about this.

Here's a cool fact: a spooked turkey can run at speeds up to 20 mph and can also burst into flight at speeds approcahing 50-55 mph in a matter of seconds! How they all manage to get caught is a mystery.

By the way, Californians are the largest consumers of turkey in the nation. And did you know that commercially raised turkeys cannot fly? I am sure it is because of their tight living quarters.

Raise your hand if you have ever eaten a T.V. dinner emoticon . Come on. I know there are some latch-key kids out there who have popped the Swanson Salisbury Steak meal in while mom went to bowling league. Part of the reason Swanson created t.v. dinners in 1953 was because they needed to find something to do with the 260 tons of frozen turkeys that were left over from that year's Thanksgiving.

And here is a scary thought: the week of Thanksgiving is the deadliest week of the year for motorist. It may be a combination of how many people are on the road, or perhaps weather conditions but whatever the cause, please be safe this holdiay weekend if you are traveling.

Last but not least, I had to make an appeal on behalf of my buddy

    I agree with you....Turducken may be the most disgusting looking meal ever. Considering I'm not a poultry fan, it's definitely not on my list of "to try" foods!! Hope you have a very nice Thanksgiving!! emoticon

    Happy Thanksiving! I haven't had Turduken...but it makes me wonder about who the heck thought to put all of those together? Some guy named Bubba....after about 10 beers into it, came back from huntin without catching anything. Having the munchies, and only one vat of boiling oil......stuffs one bird in the next bird into the other bird...then throws it in. LOL!

    Haha, my husband and I just had a conversation about Turducken the other day.
    We are vegetarians so we won't be eating any Turkeys anyways.

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!

    I watched an episode of Unwrapped on the Food Network this weekend and then showed how they make Tur-Duk-Hen (that's hard to even write without laughing, isn't it??). I can honestly say that I won't be trying it (EVER!)

    Thanks for the interesting blog!

    Have a happy and safe Thanksgiving holiday.

    Never heard of such a thing! Hope I never do again; I don't like turkey now even more than I didn't like turkey before. Thanks for the trivia!

    Your buddy is safe at my place, we don't do turkey. Mom makes chicken tamales emoticon You can take a girl out of Mexico, but you can't take the Mexican out of the girl.

    One of my coworkers said his family is making a turducken this year.
    I was joking with another coworker that it should be featured in American Horror Story - it's pretty horrific!

    I love turkey on Thanksgiving. And I LOOOOOOVE duck. But I really think Turducken is just an easy way to ruin three meats at a time. How can they be cooked to perfection like that? *shakes head*
