I’m thankful for so many things. My children, my husband, my mother, the great state I call home, my entire family, my work, my health, our military heroes, my country, my education, our messy democracy, music, …… Well suffice it to say I’m very thankful because I have a very long list of God’s blessings. I love Thanksgiving.
I’m about to enter the zone, also known as my kitchen. I do all the cooking for the big Turkey Day. I love cooking. I grew up at my grandmother’s knee in the kitchen. I watched and learned as she, her sister (Beppy), and my mother turned out amazing meals. Time in the kitchen + family= heaven.
We have 18 for dinner this year. Joseph and I have a blended family of seven children, so if everyone is here, including all my siblings, we have over thirty including babies!
I thought I’d share recipes of two of our traditional dressings we serve every year. One is my Kitchen Sink dressing. While full of carbs, it doesn’t have much fat. The other one is my mom’s Oyster Dressing which is full of butter and cream. Trying to write down these recipes was hard for us, cause we never measure. Remember to relax and not worry about exactness on these recipes. Dressings are very forgiving.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
