Christmas Day is coming to a close at our house. We’ve all checked our stockings, opened packages, eaten til we couldn’t eat another bite and then everyone but Dad and Chad have had long naps.
Here we are in our aprons early this morning. I quickly shed mine and went back to my standard cooking attire – a T-shirt!
My grandma always made the best cornbread dressing and then when she stopped cooking in the late 80’s, mom started doing Christmas dinner and her dressing was as good as my grandma’s. I never made dressing til the first Thanksgiving I was in GA with Vince in 1996. I was calling mom on the phone and trying to figure out what to do step by step and I doubt that first batch of dressing was worth eating. Since we haven’t gone home for Thanksgiving or Christmas in 10 years, I’ve made quite a few batches of dressing but never felt mine was as good as mom’s or my grandma’s. Today mom told me that my dressing was the best dressing she’d ever had and both she and dad ate lots of it so I’m thinking I’ve passed the cornbread dressing test.
Chad made some kind of Ginger Cake Roll for our dessert and it was yummy.
