Ruby Tuesday - Stuffing

The start of something good
Thanksgiving arrives this week, and I have a few reds for Mary's Ruby TuesdayWe have much to be thankful for, and all four of us will be home to enjoy conversation and food - in that order...

We will not stuff the bird, but will make the stuffing anyway. We like this particular brand, however will enhance the product a bit for more flavor: onion and celery for aromatic flavors; an apple for a hint of sweetness; sausage (turkey sausage is a fine sub); cider for moisture and butter. The apple cider is added to the mixture before baking for moistness. I love the smell of onions and celery cooking in butter on Thanksgiving morning.

It sounds divine! I'm asked to bring the stuffing this year and I like your addition of sausage.

Yum. I love the onion,celery smell too, but have never liked the smell of TURKEY!!! I generally put ours in a crockpot and relegate it to the garage to do it's 24hour cooking. No smell in the house, and Patrick says it's always the most tender turkey he's ever had. You're welcome for this timely-turkey-tidbit!! hehe.

You're not going to make Patti put it all together, are you? :)

CLAD IN RED

Whenas in red my Julia’s clad,
Then, then (methinks) she’s wicked bad—
Like Hester Prynne, but not so sad.

Next, when I cast mine eyes and see
Those crimson skirts flow full and free,
Her sweet seductions taketh me!
