Ah, Thanksgiving. Roasting turkey, pumpkin pie, stuffing, could life get any better? Truthfully, yes! See, this year I missed thanksgiving dinner!

*Cue violins and sobbing children*

My wife and I are driving the Oregon coast, and it wasn't until yesterday that we realized thanksgiving had come and gone. *Shakes fist* Darn you, Americans, for not adopting our thanksgiving day as your own!!

Oh, don’t feel bad, I can afford to miss a giant meal or two - it's probably for the best. The reason for my post—besides wishing all you Canuckers a belated happy thanksgiving—is to share a promise I made to myself: Maybe not next year, or the one after, but one of these years I’m going to prepare a Thanksgiving dish that I’ve wanted to try since the moment I’ve heard of its existence. It’s something so magnificent that the mere mention of it brings Goosebumps to my arms. Are you ready? *Clears throat and offers grand arm flourish* TURDUCKEN!

That’s right, a Turducken. According to Wikipedia: A TURDUCKEN is a dish consisting of a de-boned chicken stuffed into a de-boned duck, which itself is stuffed into a de-boned turkey. 

 Have you ever heard of something so marvelous? Of course you haven’t! Unless you’re one of the lucky few who have actually consumed this culinary masterpiece in which case I am eternally jealous of you!

I figure I have a couple years to learn exactly how one goes about de-boning a bird. It sounds . . . impossible.
