Turducken anyone?

So, I was watching a show on Food Network and they featured Turducken.  It is a boneless chicken inside of a boneless duck inside of a boneless turkey.  There is some yummy sausage-based stuffing in between each layer.  I knew that this was the turkey for me!  Well, I couldn't find duck anywhere before Thanksgiving, so it wasn't going to happen.  I did, however, make the stuffing, deboned the turkey and added chicken thighs to the inside of the turkey (I would have deboned a chicken, too, but I was afraid that doing two birds on my first attempt would be difficult).  I placed the laptop on the counter and watched a YouTube video on how to debone a turkey.  It worked great!  It took about 7 hours to cook the concoction.  I am pleased to announce that it was delicious.  I am for sure going to find a duck and add a full chicken to the mix next time.  Christmas?  We'll see.  Sam was so into the process and he helped me throughout the evening.  We not only did the "Turken" but we also prepped and cooked a regular turkey using our "secret recipe."  Enjoy the pics!
