In the past few days, I've read about three "combo" holiday meals that, visually, make me throw up in the back of my throat a bit. The first being Turducken which is chicken stuffed inside a duck...stuffed inside a turkey.
And if you don't want to go through all that stuffing trouble, why not try a Turkey Cake?
This mouth-watering creation is made up of a layer of sweet potatoes, stuffing, and Turkey loaf with a mashed potatoes icing that is topped with brown marshmallows.
And what, you must be wondering, goes best with that? Why...Cherpumple, of course.
That would be Cherry Pie + Pumpkin Pie + Apple Pie = Cherpumple
These creations all remind me of that episode of Friends where Rachel made a traditional English dessert, but accidentally combined that recipe with a Shepard's Pie recipe...
"It's a trifle. It's got all of these layers. First there's a layer of ladyfingers, then a layer of jam, then custard, which I made from scratch, then raspberries, more ladyfingers, then beef sauteed with peas and onions, then a little more custard, and then bananas, and then I just put some whipped cream on top!"
To which Ross later replied: "It tastes like feet."
Bring me a bucket!
