Jo, Growing up I never knew there was any other kind of dressing than cornbread!:eek: My MIL is originally from Illinois and I ate what she called bread dressing for the first time and my best friend’s family made the same thing because they were from Ohio originally. They told me that was the only kind of dressing made up there and that they hadn’t eaten cornbread dressing until they came south. and I had help making it too! 5lbs of potatoes is no easy thing to boil, dump water, mash, remash and lift to the oven.
This Holiday, Kroger is cooking the turkey, HoneyBaked Ham is making the Ham, relatives are making everything else, visitors are assigned items to bring and I’m in charge of the bar. My brother is making a cajun dressing with crawfish sounds yummy! Being a Yankee, I never did care for cornbread dressing but have tasted plenty of it. I like bread stuffing the best. with loads of gravy!! Sadly, it’s StoveTop this year.
My big problem is getting the house clean before guests arrive. I can do some of it, but it will KILL me and I’ll be miserable company because of it. This will be the biggest chunk of family to see me really bad off. :confused: I wonder how they will respond? I’m going to see if I can recruit some friends to help me but for the long term, I just can’t cope with the housework anymore. there goes one more means of stress relief. If I will find enough enjoyment or give something valuable enough to someone else, then I figure maybe the flare will be worth it. Yesterday my husband told me that his mom was mentioning that whoever brought the pies last year, they were just not very good, so I told him to tell her we’ll bring the pies. My daughters are 9 12 now, and the 12 yo can even roll out a pie crust, so with a lot of help I think we’ll give it a shot.
