Lots of help to get things ready for serving. All the work that went into the deconstruction and subsequent reconstruction, no room for error. Thumbs up across the board--one of the best ever!

2007: Turducken II: New and improved adapted with a domestic duck, 2 new stuffings, and met with rave reviews. Especially by those who ate shot last year. Hip, Hip, Hooray!! We had a small turkey which presented some logisitical issues. Once the glow had worn off, we vowed to go big in 2008.
And today is the day...we have a new venue, co-hosts, and are expecting RECORD numbers. Here's hoping we knock it out of the park.

With the lights all strung and the sound check done, doors around 4:00 pm. The theme was DECK THE BALLS, and despite the obvious references/responses, everyone was creative and brought food and beverages in the spirit of this theme. Some notable mentions included spinach balls, triple threat cheese balls, many many meatballs, peanut butter balls, sweet potato balls, death by chocolate balls, and "Holy Bocci Balls, Batman!"What a wonderful way to kick off the holiday season! Thanks to all those in attendance. More ambitious bloggers have a posting up with more pictures. Even one of my "mic-ed up" for commentary. If only I had more to say...

A few days later, I packed my bags and headed south. SETAC was in Tampa, FL and luckily the sun was in attendance. We managed to soak up some rays in between talks, it made it difficult to leave the patio and soak up the science. That meeting went well, but it is over, and I am further north in Melrose, FL to spend the week with my family. Plus I have a lot of sleep and silence to catch up on. Conferences mean talking too much, sleeping too little. Time to recover.
