    Default What? No topic about "turducken"? Or does that have to wait until

    It's rather surprising there's been no mention recently about
    'turducken' over the past week or month since it's been the harvest
    season and "Thanksgiving" - so to speak. Just something to notice due
    to the absence of its topic

    Sky, who's never even seen a 'turducken'!

    P.S. Do folks really cook this 'turducken' thing?! ;D

    It's a matter of opinion, obviously, but I think the combination of
    chocolate, hazelnut, and orange is an improvement on any of those items
    eaten individually.

    I heard that out of the corner of my ear yesterday and it sounded
    about as appealing as turducken.

    Me, I happily had a piece of homemade spice cake with roasted walnuts
    and cream cheese frosting and slivers of store bought strawberry rhubarb
    pie and pumpkin pie.

    I don't go crazy eating a ton of food on T Day but everything
    was really good yesterday. The turkey was moist and tasty, the
    green bean almondine came out great, yummy stuffed mushrooms
    etc etc.

    Best of all, the company was excellent.

    I love all 3 but have had to give up eating any combo of chocolate with
    orange; gives me a headache. Separately they don't.

    Strawberries with raw raspberry sauce (raspberries pushed through a

    Chestnuts with brussels sprouts and melted butter.

    Crusty bread, smoked salmon, lemon juice.

    That works for me. I think there are lots of ingredients that do
    that. [and I guess chicken, turkey, and duck could be called
    ingredients] Onions, celery & carrots certainly belong
    together.

    I thin 'entree' would better reflect what I was thinking.

    As if we need proof thanks has been replaced by greed, in the form of
    gluttony, as the motivating factor for this holiday.

    I don't know that people eat any more food because they
    might have those things, they just don't appeal to me. And
    I like having separate slivers of dessert than trying to squeeze
    all the flavors into one.

    I'm not above overeating once in a while, but not on Thanksgiving
    so much.

    I love ya, nb, but I respecfully disagree. I don't think Thanksgiving is
    about gluttony. It's about family and friends. I may not have family
    living nearby but I talked with my oldest brother, my nephew and one of my
    aunts (she's 90-something, that's all she'll admit to). John called on his
    way to a neighbors house for dinner. (I even watched a 1993 version of 'The
    Waltons Thanksgiving Reunion'. That was weird. LOL) It's not about greed
    (??) or gluttony. I don't eat more on Thanksgiving than I do at any other
    meal. And I'm a small person so I don't eat a lot.

    I ordered one this year. It is in the freezer. I'll make it within the
    month and report back.

    I have a long-standing habit of ordering at least one nutso epicurean
    adventure this time of year.

    You may be right, Jill. I forgot that total blind naked greed was
    temorarily postponed until today, Black Friday. My bad.

    I almost went completely nuts and bought a whole smoked ham, after
    reading a great ham baking article in an old Fine Cooking issue. I'm
    starting to jones for some GOOD ham, fer putting between biscuits and
    such. I decided to wait for Easter. The Thanksgiving turkey meal was
    enough of a meat cheat for one week.

    On filbert orange chocolate... TIAD dago.

    Actually nothing improves quality chocolate, it's the chocolate that
    improves the nuts and citrus at the expense of demoting the chocolate.

    I was in the venerable McGonigle's meat market one day when a guy came to
    the meat counter and announced in a New Englander accent that he wasn't from
    around here, and wanted something they surely did not have and had probably
    never heard of, but maybe they could order it...

    A butcher asked him what he was looking for and he said "turducken".

    Nobody spoke, but knowing glances were exchanged by everyone behind the
    counter and some of the customers and then finally everyone burst out
    laughing... except the east coaster, of course.

    Then the butcher led the guy to a freezer case where they keep the
    obligatory turduckens for tasteless dorks, especially the ones from the east
    coast who figure everyone in the midwest is a clueless rube. It was classic.

    Me either, although I've seen it listed for sale somewhere that I
    don't remember now.

    No idea. I tend to shy away from things with the word "turd" in it.

    Are you saying "turducken" is an East Coast thing?

    I saw turducken at Whole Foods, perhaps last year. I haven't yet
    examined the freezer cases this year.

    Oh yes, I heard Mark Bittman opining on the origin of the dish,
    and he thought it was first done by Paul Prudhomme. BUT there was
    a similar recipe in an African cookbook I was just reading, and I
    suspect you will find the origins there.

    Now, though, I am wondering about those extravagant banquets in
    the distant past and am wondering whether such ideas were ever
    seen at them. Seem folks were casting about for astonishing dishes.
