When my brother was an infant/toddler he could do that. I remember once he was eating chicken soup -- swallowed the broth and the vegetables and spit out the chunks of chicken.
UK’s Christmas meal is turkey, my birth country’s Christmas meal is carp. I don’t dislike turkey, but I do find it boring and bland. I do hate carp with passion. So we replaced both meals with duck and with lamb. Not very traditional, but at least we enjoy it more.I don't like turkey at all -- on Thanksgiving I generally eat a drumstick mostly because it has the most crispy skin.
Next week will be just my husband and me, and we're planning to make an assortment of side dishes and a cheese plate. Stuffing, cranberry sauce (for him), baked cinnamon apples, sweet potatoes, maybe some asparagus.
You are not the only person to mention using eggs in stuffing.Mine is based on my departed beloved grandmother's recipe, which was celery and onion softened in a ton of butter then mixed into oven-toasted white bread cubes, then a few eggs beaten with sage, salt and pepper mixed in.
Moisture, and I would assume coagulating properties to help the stuffing have a custardy mouthfeel.
I’ll have to check, but I think my traditional bread stuffing recipe includes eggs.
The butcher advised us to get a whole breast of about 8 lbs and freeze half. Given the convolutions he’s gone through to get breast, small turkeys and duck, he’s concerned that there may be fewer choices at Christmas.I found some fresh bone in turkey breast and bought the smallest one they had. Just checked and it weighs 4 lbs. This is good because we will not have to eat turkey for a week. I hope it's good.
I just looked at our butcher's web page. It looks like they still have ham, prime rib and limited turkey. I guess I need to figure out if we can Tertris the freezer to purchase some soon.The butcher advised us to get a whole breast of about 8 lbs and freeze half.

Bingo. And it's not like a dessert custard at all, it's more like the interior of french toast or a Yorkshire pudding, only there's not a centre to this thing. It's 1-2 eggs for an entire loaf of bread.Moisture, and I would assume coagulating properties to help the stuffing have a custardy mouthfeel.
My cousin Lynn had to take her dog to the vet this morning (and wait in the car!), and one thought led to another (I took Sadie with me to the printer to get our skating dress company brochures the day after Thanksgiving because I was getting her nails cut at the vet after I got back from the rink and the printer was closing early and they said to bring her with me!) - https://fborfw.com/strip_fix/strips/15/fb151004.jpgI remember a For Better or Worse comic once years ago, where Farley the dog was eating the family’s leftovers, and was spitting the peas out. After he was done, his bowl was empty and the peas were scattered on the floor around the bowl.
I always see caffeine free diet coke! I could probably start a small business by shipping it to FSUers.@BaileyCatts They rarely have DH's favorites and mine at the same time. I spoke to the frozen food manager and he said that many of the big producers cut back production. I guess it's similar to what happened with soda... the most popular items are available, but if your looking for diet, caffeine free, your choices are limited.
If you have an Asian foods market near you, try that. Usually a lot cheaper than the supermarkets. Minimum package size is typically 10 lbs, though.I haven't been able to find rice for a long time. They have the high-priced fancy stuff, but not the generic long-grain rice that we tend to use.
Some brands of mixed nuts are real ripoffs: they're 50% or more peanuts. Nuts have become a major part of my diet for various health-related reasons. I buy separate packages of different nuts and make individual servings of mixed nuts. If you try to make a big batch of mixed nuts, they settle unevenly and don't stay mixed uniformly.We now have 3 cans of Mixed Nuts. We order Deluxe Mixed Nuts (no peanuts) but get mixed nuts (includes peanuts). Mr. Mac is fine with the mixed nuts but I don't like peanuts that much.
