I've always wanted to try turducken and today I have, because the local super was serving individual portions of same. And now I know that the turkey part is dry but the duck and chicken inside is lovely. I'm not sure if it was a proper bird-in-bird-in-bird, since I strongly suspect that at least one of the interior birds was minced.

Still yummy.

I have heard of these things but the idea is just like ... you know that old rhyming thing 'the old woman who swallowed a fly' scenario. I guess if it is a bird-in-a-bird-in-a-bird ... it depends if you could get a chicken small enough to go inside a duck? Or you could get a fair sized chicken and then stuff the duck in ... in that case would it be called a Turkenduck? Turchiduck? The mind boggles.

Obviously my mind wants to think only nonsense today!

MERRY CHRISTMAS MY DEAR!!!! *many hugs and much, much love!*

It's very much the old lady who swallowed a fly. In some versions you continue with a cornish rock hen and a quail, which yields a name no one can pronounce. Still an awful lot of deboning for an uncertain result, but explains why the finished product goes for $100 US.

Happy holidays to you and your family as well!
