If three is good, four is surely better…

Just in time for Thanksgiving, a fresh take on an old favorite, Turducken— a chicken stuffed in a duck stuffed in a turkey (all stuffed with cornbread dressing, of course).

What could improve on this Olympian delight?  Well, what improves a hamburger, or an omelette, or… well, just about anything?  Bacon!

From our friends at Bacon Today, illustrated instructions for the preparation of the Turbaconducken (Turducken Wrapped in Bacon)…  it may look like a part of an alien autopsy, but it’s reputedly really yummy… and in any case, one’s bound to be the only gourmand on the block serving such succulence.

As we loosen our belts, we might wish a thoughtful Happy Birthday to Baruch (or Benedict) de Spinoza, the Dutch philosopher whose rationalism and determinism put him in opposition to Descartes and helped lay the foundation for The Enlightenment, and whose pantheistic views led to his excommunication from the Jewish community in Amsterdam; he was born on this date in 1632.

As men’s habits of mind differ, so that some more readily embrace one form of faith, some another, for what moves one to pray may move another to scoff, I conclude … that everyone should be free to choose for himself the foundations of his creed, and that faith should be judged only by its fruits; each would then obey God freely with his whole heart, while nothing would be publicly honored save justice and charity.

– Tractatus Theologico-Politicus, 1670
