I remember when we all called it dressing and stuffed it inside the bird...now I make it in the oven the day before and daughter roasts the bird...we call it stuff ing and eat them together...lol. Anyhow...I made cranberry relish and cooked the green beans and then made the stuffing...worn out...lol...but that's gonna be some good eatin'. Daughter will make the other half of the meal and now I can't wait to pig out.
Hope everyone here has a happy Thanksgiving!
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, we only give of ourselves and a whole bunch of great food....the holiday is not commercialized for the most part and we get to spend time with family and friends... this year we do have to travel, but we will be bringing pies, fresh seafood, a special sourdough bread with dried fruits and honey, and my favorite part, I get to make the gravy... I think 24 people will partake..
We know a farm up on Pepper ridge that prepares stuffing for us, but we do enhance it a bit.

Hope y'all do have a nice one.
Our stuffing has everything made from scratch...bread, plus then I put in some veggies and grind the spices down and cook them first and then put broth and all that...oh gosh it's just got so many steps...lol...I only make it on Thanksgiving and Christmas because it's time consuming and a lot of work...but we all love it so it's well worth the effort twice a year.
We just have each other...Mike, me, daughter and her son and husband...happy we do have our little family and grateful that we all get along. I know there are many people have no family and this is a very tough holiday for them.
The only thing I am stuffing for Thanksgiving is my belly.
I hope everyone enjoys the holiday and has the opportunity to hug necks and tell family how much you love and appreciate them.
Doug, I know that farm! :) We made two batches of stuffing this year, with celery, onion, and extra poultry seasoning. Years ago, my husband and I looked at each other and said, "What do we really want to eat on Thanksgiving?" and then boiled it down to the bare essentials--stuffing, gravy, and pumpkin pie. Anything else we decide to make is just a bonus.
Peggy, my grandmother used to make stuffing from scratch for local church and masonic suppers. She'd get day-old bread and take big handfuls and dip it in water and pull it into pieces and add the usual additions. Kind of weird, but people loved it!
