Tastes like chicken

To me, Thanksgiving is the bestest meal ever.  What's not to like?  Turkey, cranberry sauce, and carb overload . . . stuffing, smashed taters, corn, bread . . . you get the picture.  So, throughout the year I try to find ways of experience this yummiest of meals without going through all the work to make a full-on turkey feast.  

After one such meal, talking to hubby I find out that he can't taste the difference between turkey and chicken.  Really?  Is he for real? Yeah . . . he is.  I don't know how he can't tell the difference.  That's like saying you can't tell the difference between an orange and a mandarin . . . same family . . . totally different taste.

Perhaps I have a more refined or cultivated palate but turkey has a unique taste to it that is hard to describe, but it tastes very different from chicken. 

Anyhoo . . . have you ever noticed how many things actually do taste like chicken?  And, I'm not just talking poultry, here.  I've heard people describe rattle snake, rabbit and . . . gulp . . . cat as tasting like chicken.  It's like God got bored of making up different flavors after making chicken and made everything else taste like that.  Just a theory.
