Tis' the Season for Overeating... once again, The Week in Food:*

In medieval England they were often made with lamb and currants. The ancient Romans sometimes used mussels for filling or made a cheese-cake-like dish with the unfortunate name placenta: go to Time magazine and learn all about pie.

Dehydrated mashed potatoes, dried cranberries, gravy powder: go here to learn how to get Thanksgiving dinner through airport security (the information might come in handy next year).

Speaking of holiday travel, you would think going into outer space would prevent a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. You would be wrong.

So you've got a bottle of tequila around the house, but you're not in the mood for margaritas? You might consider making diamonds.

Have you ever craved a baby seal burger? How about some medium rare (human) flank steak? I leave you to ponder the possibilities of lab-grown meat.

*Some of these items aren't from this week, but it's my blog and I'll do what I want.
