The Main Dish
In Memory of our sweet mother, Nora Belle Campbell
1917 - 2013
Holidays are near….lots of family coming! My mind has taken flight already so I try and do lots of cooking before the big day.
Mother’s dressing is the main dish… so this morning, my sister came over with four pones of cornbread and I had baked more…we had already cooked a “fat fresh hen,” had about six quarts of rich broth, and had chopped a gallon of celery and onions! I pulled out the huge dishpan(Mothers) that we always use to mix all this dressing.
This year is going to be easy. We are doing the turkey and dressing and the kids are bringing the sides! Thank you, Lord!
We made four 13x9 casseroles of dressing! Bake it Thanksgiving morning and take my word for it! No one will ever know you had frozen it.(2 of these are my sisters, just so you know.) Another handy item that freezes well, see the two gallon bags of Taco soup? So good!
Again, the more I do in advance, the more I can enjoy my family.
