Getting Ready for Thanksgiving

Are you one of those people who really enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday or is it just the holiday between the candy & the presents for you? I LOVE Thanksgiving. It is a time for my family to cook, eat, play board games, and watch TV together. It is a very laid back holiday that we all get to enjoy.

My mother-in-law has an open door policy for her home at Thanksgiving. All are welcome to come and the more the merrier. Half of us end up watching a movie or a football game (of course) and the rest of us gather around the dinning room table to play a game or just to talk.

So as we prepare for this wonderful holiday I would like to share with you a dressing recipe. It is a family recipe that no one ever seems to use measurements on and somehow it always turn out perfect. It is my husband's grandmothers recipe. All those who knew her say she was a wonderful lady and a great cook. Enjoy!


corn bread / old bread / biscuits
2 eggs
butter (2 tsp)
sage (2 Tbs)
salt & pepper
apple (peeled & chopped)
chicken or turkey broth

Chop onion and celery, and saute in butter in a small pan until tender. Mix all the ingredients and then add the broth until it is nice and juicy. You can add meat at this point if you would like. Bake in the oven at 400 for 10-20 minutes.
