We are having a pre-Thanksgiving dinner with some friends today and I’m in charge of the stuffing! I’ve never made it before so I asked my mom for a recipe and she dug up the one my grandma always used to use:
24 slices broken bread 1 cup minced onion 1 1/2 cups butter (lots!) 1 egg beaten a little 1 cup water but add gradually as needed (this is where she started using the broth instead) 1 1/2 teaspoons Bell seasoning or Sage A little salt and pepper
Melt butter and add the minced onion and cook over low heat until yellowed.
Mix into the broken bread very well so that butter and onion are well dispersed in the bread. Add the seasonings mixing well. Gradually add the water or broth to hold the mixture together. Refrigerate and stuff bird when cool.
You will have a stuffing that any Grandma would be proud of!
I had an awesome dinner out at Patrizio’s tonight. It’s in Highland Park Village and is surprisingly affordable considering that it’s next door neighbors at Christian Louboutin, Jimmy Choo and Harry Winston. I had the tortellini with sun tried tomato pesto and it was so delicious.
Dinner was followed by a tour through Highland Park to look at Christmas lights. Not too many houses have them up yet, but it was SO fun! Really starting to get into the holiday spirit.
Now headed to bed early so that I can hopefully make it up for 9AM free yoga at Lululemon!
It took four years in Nashville and a year in Dallas, but I am officially a HUGE country music fan. Seriously don’t think I could live without it any more. Jerrod Niemann will be singing me to sleep tonight.
I have NEVER made it up on Sunday for 9AM yoga, but when you go to bed at 8PM it’s not too hard. I slept from 8p-6:30a plus the extra hour since we set the clocks back and it felt great. I’m pretty sure that going to yoga might be the exact opposite of the redneck day I had yesterday at the race track.
