Super Bowl food madness

I don't know about you, but I am finishing all my outdoor chores early so I can watch all those great commercials.

It seems like every year, Super Bowl displays at the store get grander and grander.  One store I visited had an entire pool of avocado, fresh hot peppers and white onions at the entryway.  One had to search hard for the chips.  That is the way it should be.

After a month of checking, I finally found the turduken on sale.  It was featured around the fall and winter holidays for an astounding price.  This weekend it was marked twenty dollars down, to the amazingly low price of nine ninety-nine!

So, I bought one one of these LOU-siana specialties for the big game.  That is less per pound than even the cheapest meats.  It is thawing in the fridge right now, and I'll put it in the oven when the game starts.


  1. i see you know how to pronounce Lou'siana like a native. ;-) we home-created a turducken one year -- i didn't find it very inspiring. you'll have to tell me how you enjoy the commercially-made version!

  2. I only know how to pronounce it cause I have relatives from Balmer.

    1. i actually called it turkucken when we made it because the idea of putting on my table something starting with the letters t-u-r-d just didn't seem right.

  3. We all thought it was better than expected. I thought it needed more fat, but at least it wasn't too salty. I'd buy it again, but the sale price, not for almost 30 dollars. I might try making something like it, cause it sure is handy for breakfast.
