Okay....Let's Talk Football Food!!

      Mrs. Wug: You know...I was looking around on the Etsy site and I'm just amazed at how quick...and creative...people are! The big game...the Super Bowl, Baby! ^_^ on this Sunday, and you should see the things people have been selling! I wish I had been that savvy weeks ago in preparation for the game!....Me....I've just been waiting to eat Super Bowl food!! ^_^

Mr. Wug: You're not the only one! That's all everybody at my job is talking Super Bowl food!...One guy is actually looking forward to having him a 'turducken'! Ha! Ha!
        Mrs. Wug: What in the world is a 'turducken'?! O_0

Mr. Wug: Well, he said it's a boneless turkey that's stuffed with boneless duck, and then the boneless duck is stuffed with chicken! ^_^ He said it was good, but I laughed because I didn't think there was any such thing!

       Mrs. Wug: What????!!!!!!!.....Okay, I gotta go and see if Wikipedia has any info on this....I think he was pulling your leg!

{After a Google search......}

      Mrs. Wug: Guess what?!....There really is such a thing as a turducken!!!!!! ^_^ Wikipedia even had a picture of one!! Look at this...
             ...And your guy's description was just about on the money too. Wikipedia says that a "Turducken is a dish consisting of a de-boned chicken stuffed into a de-boned duck, which itself is stuffed into a de-boned turkey. The word turducken is a portmanteau {a blend of two or more words into one new word} of turkey, duck, and chicken or hen. The dish is a form of engastration,  a recipe method in which one animal is stuffed inside the gastric passage of another."...WOW! I can't believe I lived fifty plus years without ever hearing about a turducken!! ^_^

Mr. Wug: And I wouldn't believe it either...if I didn't see it!! ^_^

        Mrs. Wug: And even so, I'm not having turducken for the Super Bowl...just so you know!!!! Ha! Ha! 

Mr. Wug: Yeah, I hear you! ^_^

          Mrs. Wug: That reminds me, we haven't decided what we ARE having Sunday, for the! ...I know one thing that's definitely gonna be on the wings!! :-) And I don't mean chicken wings that are doused in some kind of sauce either! I'm talking about spicy seasonings on regular...non-gooey...chicken wings!!...

         ....I don't want stuff on my hands while I'm rooting for my New England Patriots! :-]

 Mr. Wug: I think they should be drowned in sauce! ^_^

        Mrs. Wug: Okay....drown yours!

Mr. Wug: ^_^ I will!...And you can just follow my trail of drippy barbecue sauce and bleu cheese and celery dip! LOL...

         .....I'll be in my corner, eating away like a hungry dog! And don't bother me. I might growl at ya!! LOL

        Mrs. Wug: Fine!...I'll be in my corner with a veggie dip, some sea salt and vinegar chips, and bell and other peppers of all kinds and colors....

         ....and maybe some pizza...

         ......and a cupcake or two! :-)

 Mr. Wug: Make sure you get some Cheetos too!...And are we making Chili this year?!

       Mrs. Wug: Hold up!....How many people are coming over here for the game?! O_O

Mr. Wug: Nobody!'s just you and me! :-)

          Mrs. Wug: Uhhhh....Well, considering the kind of food we're planning here, maybe we better be watching for the ambulance coming through the living room, instead of touchdown after touchdown by Tom Brady! ^_^...because you know those touchdowns are gonna be a turducken with all those wings!! Ha! Ha! Ha!  

Mr. Wug: Ha! Ha!....Whatever!
