Gobble, Quack, Cluck!

Picked up the Turducken earlier this evening. The bird(s) is resting quietly in the fridge for tomorrow's festivities.  I believe this is also stuffed with rice, cranberry and sausage to boot.

One surprise was this order does NOT come with the legs for some reason.  Called after we got home once I noticed they were missing and they declared they remove the legs (not the wings) and put them in their meat case.  Not sure this this is totally ethical but, I figure we have enough meat to run with it.

I think this baby weighs in at about 11.3 pounds sans bones.  Plan is to pop this melding of poultry meats into the oven at 8am, cook for a marathon 9 hours while basting every 90 minutes.  Then it sets for a mouth watering hour until we carve it and begin the feast.

2 cheesecakes have been made and are comforting the anomaly that sits in the fridge, turducken that is.

Susan plans to also make winter squash gratin (guyere, butternut squash and tomato).

Friends are currently signed up to bring Salad, Stuffing, Pumpkin Pie, Green Beans, Mashed Potatoes and beverages.

My stomach hurts already.
