Thanksgiving is less than a week away, so hopefully you have all made your plans and travel arrangements. Deciding whether or not to actually spend this annual celebration of gluttony and football with your family can often be a tough decision, especially if your creepy Uncle Jim is going to be there again this year.
But there is an even bigger decision to make – and that’s what to serve on the big day. Many of you will decide to kick it old school and will serve an oven-baked turkey. There is certainly nothing wrong with that decision. However, perhaps you will decide to be adventurous and kick it up a notch. Perhaps you will deep fry your turkey. Or, if you are truly adventurous (or a big fan of John Madden), you might be considering serving a Turducken – a chicken stuffed inside a duck stuffed inside a turkey.
And while you can never go wrong with two meats shoved inside a turkey, there is one more option that you may be unaware of. Perhaps you enjoy the artery-clogging goodness of a Turducken, but you just can’t shake the feeling that you could make your meal even more ridiculous and unhealthy. If you are looking for a way to send your Thanksgiving meal over the top, then I suggest the Turbaconducken. That’s a Turducken wrapped in bacon.
The health nuts over at BaconToday.com were kind enough to provide a recipe for the Turbaconducken, which you can find here:

Overrated – The Natural
Robert Redford’s classic baseball film The Natural is generally considered to be one of the greatest sports movies ever made. The catchy theme song and memorable final scene are ingrained in the minds of most sports fans. But Ned Bitters can’t help but feel that the film is overrated.
