For Thanksgiving This Year…

Those of you who have been reading this blog for quite a while will remember the ridiculous experience I had some years ago with a Heritage/Heirloom Turkey, an experience I will never willingly repeat.

So a little wrinkle happened in my life last week. After Book Fair, which was wonderful and fun, was finally over, I had a teensy medical experience that necessitated a quick surgery on Friday. No worries, everything’s all good here, and I am likely to return to work tomorrow. (I will say my NaNoWriMo project has been derailed, among other things, but ah well, I’ll claw my way back to it.) But resting up this weekend has given me some time to plan my menu for Thanksgiving this year.

I thought I’d go with something a little different. May I present…

…The TurKracken!!!

And here it is all cooked.  *gigglesnort*

This is the Deluxe model.

My kids cannot wait to see their grandmothers’ faces when this roast beast comes out of the oven.

(Just kidding. I’m not doing this. It looks vile. I’m making proper turkey, and it will be awesome.)

N.b. I found these pictures on the Internet — all over the Internet — often with no attribution. Lots of versions of them, too. If these are your pictures, let me know so I can credit you. If they’re yours and you want me to remove them, just ask and I will.  🙂
