Thanksgiving has unexpectedly appeared in my rear view mirror. And like most Thanksgivings of late, memories of ’09 suddenly come to mind. That year, I volunteered to cook Thanksgiving dinner for the entire family. And like the dumb ass that I am, I decided it was the perfect time to try something new!
Being a fan of all things Cajun, I had always wanted to try my hands at the infamous Turducken…..you know, a chicken, stuffed inside a duck, stuffed inside a turkey…..coonass engineering at its finest. Now, I am sure for the true Cajun, cooking a Turducken is just another day on the bayou. But, for an over weight, drunken, city boy like myself, a “turphucken” (as I now call it) is a proverbial ass whip’n.
