Uncle Something’s Stuffing

When I was a kid I was very shy, painfully shy. It was so bad that I wouldn’t be able to talk to extended family members whom I didn’t see that often. My one uncle, who I can now have full length conversations with, was dubbed Uncle Something because of my shyness.

It’s crazy to think that because of that I might’ve missed out on hearing his cautionary tales, learning from his super car-packing skills or experiencing his fabulous cooking abilities. The last one is the focus of this post because one of his best side dishes is his delicious stuffing and its also National Stuffing Day! Yum.

If you’d like to pair it with your Thanksgiving meal this Thursday the recipe is below – I highly recommend it!

NOVEMBER

Autumn is wonderfully crisp and breezy, not too cold, but not nearly as mushy as spring either. There’s so much hope and energy for the holidays to come, the seasonal energy buzzes through the air and everything is pumpkin spice perfection. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a pumpkin spice junkie but ’tis the season.

Falling during my favorite season is my favorite holiday, Thanksgiving. There is no stress, no last minute shopping extravaganza for forgotten presents, no guilt over overextending your wallets to accommodate the holiday. In my childlike viewpoint, there is only delicious food and family sitting around the table together enjoying each other’s company.

In reality, Gram is in the kitchen cooking, kicking trespassers and taste-testers out and shouting over the football game in the living room at Pop to carve the turkey. Aunts are corralling cousins with demands to wash their hands and set the table, uncles are setting up extra card tables and folding chairs to accommodate the crowd. Food is being spread along the counter in buffet fashion and everyone is scrambling to get a good spot at the table. It’s pure chaos, but it’s family and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Love ya, hugs // ♄
