So, are you all done digesting the lovely bird that you stuffed before stuffing yourself? In October we took our little monkeys to a pumpkin farm in order to pick out perfectly over priced squashes and to look at some farm animals. This was the first time I've seen a turkey up close and I gotta say that they don't look anything like the cute little pine cone turkeys my kids made at co-op last week. This thing was freaky! Its skin looked like painful hemorrhoids or something out of the various horror films I'd watched as a teenager. I was disgusted, fascinated, mesmerised. I just couldn't help but stare.
Then, as I stared, I was even more appalled to find that the color on the Turkey's skin was changing color! Check it out. These are all pictures of the same turkey. Can you see the differences in the coloring? I don't know, it tasted pretty good on my plate, all covered in gravy and cranberry sauce, but I just couldn't get this flappy mug out of my mind the whole time I was eating.
