Well it's getting to be that time of year again. I know normal people won't be celebrating Thanksgiving until the 22nd of Nov, but in our family we have a thanksgiving gathering the last week of October. We do this because certain members of the family aren't around in November, so it's the last time we can all be together until spring.

The tradition is for Mom to make the regular thanksgiving dinner. Turkey, stuffing, soup, artichokes, yams, green bean casserole, the whole deal. This year I am trying to convince everyone to try something new and get a turducken. If you don't know what a turducken is, wikipedia says it's a de-boned turkey stuffed with a de-boned duck, which itself is stuffed with a small de-boned chicken. The cavity of the chicken and the rest of the gaps are filled with, at the very least, a highly seasoned breadcrumb mixture or sausage meat, although some versions have a different stuffing for each bird. There are several places you can buy a ready to roast turducken online. Pop it in the oven for several hours, make some side dishes and your ready to go.

But so far I have not had any luck convincing Mom to try something new. Well anyway, I thought I would throw a copy of our favorite Brined Roasted Turkey Recipe up into the new Recipes section of the site to share with everyone. I have had requests from friends in the past for this recipe, and now it will be easier to share. We have made this recipe several times, and it always comes out very juicy and flavorful. We have also made the Cornbread stuffing that goes along with it. Check it out, and let me know what you think.

And maybe I can still convince Mom to try out the turducken. It might be a nice new tradition.
