Well, the official Thanksgiving feast preparation has begun! Today I started preparing this GF cornbread stuffing, and also prepared the bread cubes for regular stuffing for our other guests (photos below).
Homemade bread cubes…put them into a clean grocery bag or gallon Ziploc, add salt, pepper and poultry seasoning and “Shake”! I will leave these in the bag until Thursday morning, so all I’ve got to do is add in the stock, onion and celery. Simple as that!
I will add the broth and other goodies on Thanksgiving morning. The apple pie that I made at MOPS the other week is now thawing in the fridge. And the “to do” list is longer for tomorrow. I will post the cost breakdown of our Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow night.
