A Christmas Goose

Chris (my sister's fiancé) said he wanted a goose for Christmas dinner this year. Why not? We'd be Dickensian this year.

Sorry for this raw, wrinkly, naked carcass picture. It was the only one I remembered to take of our fatty friend.

This goose was an interesting experiment. This goose was ordered two weeks in advance. This goose cost $120. This goose produced maybe 6 servings of meat (half of which were eaten). This goose produced 2 GIANT bowls of fat while it was cooking, then was still the fattiest, most fatteningly fat meat product I've ever attempted to put into my mouth. But this goose was fun, and this goose made our holiday merry and bright.

As did cute babies and Christmas morning with Corey on Skype.



Happy Holidays!

That looks like a very un-seasoned goose! I can't imagine paying $120 for 6 helpings of meat, and then only eating 3. But kudos for trying it out! Merry Christmas!

It was quite unseasoned! It just had the skin pricked so the fat could escape, and was stuffed with citrus and apples. Definitely all it needed! I wish I had an after picture.
