This Christmas Eve, a Friday night, was spent by ourselves. We had the whole day off to clean up the house, visit the stores for last minute gifts, and take a family trip to the grocery store to pick up all of the trimmings needed for the next night.
But we had to do something to make it feel a bit more like a holiday, and not just the night before a holiday. So we ordered ourselves a turducken.
A turducken? You mean duck breasts wrapped inside of a chicken all tied together inside of a turkey? Why that’s precisely what I mean! We opted to simply pre-order a turducken breast from our local Nugget Market… which left out all of the difficulty of cooking a giant bird in the oven.
And what did little Baby M think?
Well… she was a bit mystified by the main course. But then we showed her what it looked like as Mr. M carved up the strange meat beast!
Mmmm…. delicious right?
Yeah, OK, she’s good with it all! (even though she only indulged in sweet potatoes for dinner that night)
And while it would have been awesome to just have meat and stuffing alone, we did force down some spinach salad just to make sure our insides were ok for the next day!
Our 6.5 lb turducken was obviously WAY more than we could eat… so we had it for lunch the next day, and I ate it for 3 more dinners after that. And each time – it was still just as moist as it was on Christmas Eve! I was truly impressed!
Anyone else love the turducken and celebrate with this crazy bird this holiday season?
