Turducken Meets The Big Chill

Believe me, I know I didn’t post yesterday. Fail!!!

You know what though? I am not going to let it get under my skin, or beat myself up about it, because I had a great day despite the first snow flurries of the Fall (it is Chicago after all). It was sunny and the fell like pretty little crystals.

Like the groundhog, I predict another missing post tomorrow. And you know what? I can’t let it get under my skin because I am going to be having too much fun. This I know this already for sure!

This is our annual Turducken weekend! Picture a dense and stuffed hunk of fowl meets The Big Chill movie. We do it every year, hence the annual bit, but usually in January or February. This year, we wanted it to be earlier for a few good reasons.

There will be big dogs (real dogs, not hubbies), too much food, and games (the good, clean kind like Dominos). There will be just a smidgeon of wine poured as well.

I would like to say there will be pictures posted here next week, but there won’t be because I can’t do it. Someone didn’t make the guest list this year because they have been naughty. I’m no Santa, I know, but she’s been no kind of good girl either! Knowing that we did this without them would be hurtful, and I don’t want that. She doesn’t even read my blog, but you never know. I guess if she does reads this then she will. I never claimed my methods are full proof!

T-minus six hours until they arrive in rural Indiana. Lots to do. Got to go!!!

If I remember correctly, you posted about it last year and shared pics? Or am I thinking of another holiday? I don't know. I just remember thinking it looked wonderful.

I'm glad you're not letting missing a post or two get under your skin! That's a much better perspective than I have had, which is that of trying to write when I should be sleeping! I have never tried a Turducken, but I am fascinated by it. I try to imagine the taste. I imagine it's delicious! Can't wait to hear more about it and the rest of your November!
Be well!

I don't think I did post pictures of Turducken weekend. I did from a Christmas party in Shebogan, WI though when I had the chance to sit on Santa's lap! It was all sweat pants, games, and food. Chilly weather, but warm on the inside! Wouldn't have changed a thing.

I did think about it yesterday and told the thought to go away! Sometimes you have to live in order to write. Turducken is yummy! It is the best of every bird meat. Then between the layers it is stuffed. We get it from Louisiana so the dressing has a little kick! Thanks so much for stopping by again, RueAnn! I will come see you too!

I am trying to find your blog and having some difficulty. If you could send me a link, I would appreciate it very much. I want to come and visit!!!
