Thanksgiving Stuffing

Thanksgiving has always been an important holiday to me. First because it’s a day to reflect on the scores of reasons we have to be thankful and to acknowledge those we are thankful for. Thanksgiving isn’t the only day of reflection in this regard but it’s a big day for that. I also love it because family and friends are together and we get to eat amazing food. There are foods that are traditional in my family and I love to make them the way we always have. There are other foods I experiment with. My Mother was an amazing cook and I have her recipes.

Although she doesn’t cook much any more she can still tell me what I do wrong with her recipes. I think last year was the last time for an Ellen made Crumble Top Apple Pie. This year I made two. One I took on Thanksgiving day up to Ojai where we had a beautiful celebration with Bill and Sandy and Sandy’s sister Andrea and their families and friends and one for Saturday when I cooked for our family and a few friends.

My mother’s stuffing is unmatched. It is by far, hands-down, the best stuffing I have ever eaten. It is spectacular. You will never make another once you make and eat this one. It is beautiful made as a vegetarian side-dish or stuffed in the bird or as a side-dish with chicken stock. It’s just delicious.

Start with Cornbread a week or so ahead of time.
