16/30: Mama's Cornbread Dressing

Last night I made dressing for a Thanksgiving potluck at work. I don't think I'll ever be able to make dressing without thinking about Mama.  I know most everyone has a dressing recipe, but in case you don't, here's a look at making my Mama's recipe:

What you need:

2 packages of cornbread mix, prepared
1/2 package white bread (dried, or toasted if you're last minute like me)
8 eggs
2 boxes chicken stock (approximately)
2 onions, chopped
celery, chopped
poultry seasoning (about 2 tablespoons)
sage (about 1 tablespoon)
salt and pepper to taste

First, you chop up the onions and celery and saute them in a little butter.  Ignore the fact that there's no celery in my picture...I kind of forgot it.

Next, tear the bread and crumble the cornbread into a very large bowl.

Then add the onions, eggs, and chicken stock until it's a bit soupy.  Then season to taste.

Then stick it in the oven at 350 for a long while - 45 minutes or an hour.

Then bake until it's cooked up and brown on top.

Today's outfit. It's a bit monochromatic, but I ended up liking it.  I do wish I could have found a colored cardigan before this 30 days of no shopping began.  I went in Target yesterday to pick up a few things and had to avoid the clothing section like the plague for fear that I would walk out with something I shouldn't!

That might just replace stuffing at my Thanksgiving table.
