Early this morning I baked a double recipe of cornbread for the dressing.
Nice and golden brown. I resisted cutting a big hunk and spreading lots of butter on it . . yum! That would have been good . . but I didn’t do it.
Now it’s all crumbled, along with some stale white bread.
The bread crumbs will get crumbled more as they dry out. They’ll get stirred around all day tomorrow and then on Thursday morning the dressing will get mixed up and baked . . just in time to be served with the turkey. My dressing doesn’t go inside the bird, or then it would be called “stuffing” I suppose. We bake it separately . . a dish for Chad without celery and a dish for us with celery.
The excitement builds! Tomorrow I will make pies, salads, green bean bundles . . what else? Better check the menu.
How’s Thanksgiving cooking going at your house?
