Yes, you read that right. A turducken. Since it seems we have to top ourselves from last year, and my husband has crazy, crazy ideas.  Also a crazy sense of confidence in my cooking ability.  But he did do some preliminary research, and found out that we may be able to order deboned fowl from our butcher with which to create this infamous dish.  So we shall see….

Thankfully, the rest of the first night’s menu is entirely comprised of things I have made multiple times before.  Grandma’s lukshen kugel is a noodle pudding made in an heirloom pan that my husband managed to abscond with before she (horrors!) almost threw it away because it was stained.  It doesn’t taste right unless it’s made in it.

Thoughts?  Just how insane is this plan?
