Turducken (Part three of three)

The Leftovers

What is one to do with all of the extra turducken? Why make a sandwich, of course. The first attempt I made was with a heated version. In the process, it was too messy to hold by hand, so I knifed and forked it within a  microwavable storage container.

As mentioned yesterday, I will discuss the sides and how the turducken came out, specifically, the sliced turducken. Above is the full meal except for the pies. They are mentioned below.

Turducken (Part one of three)

Truducken
Truducken

The last few years I have made a turducken for Thanksgiving. It has come out fine, but I thought buying a premade one was cheating. Honestly, I didn’t know I could make one on my own and have it come out even remotely edible. You can see from the image above, it came out beautifully, but how did it taste? Keep reading, and you’ll find out. Continue reading “Turducken (Part one of three)”

End of November Update

OK, a few quick things:

  1. I have been depressed over the loss of Stan Lee and William Goldman. Two of my personal heroes.
  2. I have a turducken thing I will be writing up but am delayed because of…
  3. Had a foster over the extended weekend and he threw my schedule off completely.
  4. I MIGHT post the first chapter of the novel that follows the Prolog. I might not.
  5. Still waiting on parts from The Table of Ultimate Gaming (TOUG), which is the reason there has not been a follow-up. Trust me; it seems like it might not be nice the way things are going.
  6. The roof saga will be coming soon.
  7. More fiction on the way. If anyone wants to throw a topic out there or several things to include and I might write something based on it.
  8. Another alcohol recipe is on the way as well as an update for the Dark and Gloomy.

That should do it. More to follow in a few days.

A Cautionary Tale: Just Desserts

The story you are about to read will make no sense. As how would it be possible to tell this story, if these circumstances were true. I cannot in earnest tell you the why that I am able to relay, only the facts in the manner in which they transpired. Continue reading “A Cautionary Tale: Just Desserts”

Prologue

**Note, this was written in the early 90s. Technology was different then. It was pre-casual internet use. Also, a modern term replaced something that was bugging me at the time it was written. That term was not in general use at the time.

Beginnings

My father once told me that change will occur when you least expect it.  I feel the winds of change blowing.  Does that mean that nothing will happen?

There is nothing in this world constant, but inconsistency.

October was less than three weeks away. By the look on Curt’s face, he Continue reading “Prologue”

A Cautionary Tale: Sometimes the Truth Hurts

A Cautionary Tale: Sometimes the Truth Hurts
Grey Squirrel

A long time ago, when the world was just a bit younger than it is now, there lived a pair of squirrels. Rhea, the older of the two, was a grey, fluffy, flying squirrel. Rocky, the younger, was also grey, but more in species than in color, as his fur, unlike Rhea’s, had a black streak down his back. Unlike Rhea, Rocky could not glide, let alone fly.
