Man I feel like I gained 6 pounds overnight. Still feel full today and it’s been almost 24hrs.
We ate early this year so that we all could be together since Jamie had to work at 3pm. Thanksgiving has to be the fullest lunch you could ever eat, but man is it the best lunch ever! I was so stuffed I went to sleep around 6pm and woke up at 9:30pm and still felt full.
My family typically over cooks by about 3-4 people so that we can eat it again another day. This year we got the tur-duc-hen that my father had been wanting to try for a few years now. Now that alone is 15lbs. Just in case that sucked we got a 6lb turkey breast. Add on the pound each of green beans, broccoli, and carrots, probably 6lbs of potatoes because I peeled way too many, and probably 8lbs of stuffing. All this was for 5 people. Yeah, just 5. Needless to say we are eating Thanksgiving again tonight, Saturday, Sunday and probably Monday.
The tur-duc-hen was pretty good. Definite unanimous back to normal turkey next year but this was a nice change. The turkey was good and there was a lot of it. Not so much chicken or duck but there was enough for everyone to try. The stuffing in it wasn’t that great, but we had our family secret recipe stuffing to make up for it.

Thanks to my mother for getting up early and putting the bird in the oven and getting everything started! Lord knows my ass wasn’t getting up that early.
