So, all of Saturday I was locked up inside cooking this monstrosity of a bird-creation. It turned out really great, especially accompanied by all the wonderful side dishes that people brought (bacon brussel sprouts, mashed potato, mashed pumpkin, cranberry sauce, various snacks, chocolate cupcakes, chocolate mousse, PUMPKIN PIE… etc.) Before we could even start cooking it, we had to debone them. That took about 3 hours… so, half an hour per bird. I’m not kidding.
But, who says that deboning birds can’t be fun?? (My friend Mark checking out the bird’s legs):

For desert we had the muffins, mousses, and my love made this to die for pumpkin pie:
