Making Thanksgivng Stuffing 2010

Posted by PicasaThe Thanksgiving Stuffing came out perfect this morning.  This was the only thing I had to make for Thanksgivng this year. This stuffing recipe  has been passed down from my Great Grandmother.
 I have been making this stuffing so long, I don't use a recipe. 
My family and friends always love it.

2 loaves of Martino's potatoe bread
2 onions
1 stick of celery
1 sausage roll
1 large can of Chicken Stock
1 tablespoon of ground thyme  - if you are using fresh thyme- use your taste discretion
1 teaspoon sage
garlic salt to taste
optional: You can add some diced apples to give it a fruity taste. - A Granny Smith will give
it a nice flavor.

Saute the sausage. Remove from pan and drain and blot well with paper towels.
Saute the onions and celery in one tablespoon of shortening until tender, and set aside.
Coat 1 to 2 tablespoons of butter in the bottom of a large frying pan.
Cube up the bread, or tear into pieces like I usually do, and  add chicken stock until bread is damp,
 add thyme, sage and garlic salt to taste,  stir in onions and celery and sausage.  Saute for approximately
5 minutes or so, until the stuffing forms.  This is usually enough stuffing for a 25+ turkey, and then some.

This will be my daughter Jessica's firs time at hosting a Thanksgiving.
I have tears of joy, along with tears of not wanting to let go.
Life moves forward.

I needed a comfortable sneaker to wear for Saturday afternoons,  shopping etc. I saw these online, and thought , "how absolutely appropriate these sneakers are for me.  They are just too cute. So, I bought them. I think the'll look great with my straight leg, Saturday afternoon jeans.

Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes

I made these cupcakes a few weeks ago.  They are unique because they have a mini pumpkin pie
baked inside of the cupcake. I saw the recipe on Bake It in A  Cake, and had to try it.
They were a bit time consuming to bake, that was well worth it. I took them to work,
and they were gone before lunchtime.
The complete recipe on my site.
