Mmmmm Stuffing. Stuffing all the things this time of year. I love stuffing! Especially my delicious Crock Pot Stuffing that’s been handed down from my Aunt. I’m kind of high maintenance when it comes to stuffing. I’m sure you are thinking that I like some super complicated, stuffed full of different flavors stuffing. Nope. Traditional homemade stuffing for me all the way! And to think that I used to turn my nose up at the thought of stuffing. I’m such a weirdo. Now pumpkin pie, that I’ll still turn my nose up at. I’m much more of a Chocolate Pecan Pie type of person or Easy Pumpkin Dump Dessert kind of girl. Now those I’ll just dig into with a fork!
But let’s face it. We aren’t about to make a turkey and stuffing dinner every time we are craving a little stuffing. It’s just not realistic if our lives is it? Now, I learned that apparently some people do this and that’s just fine! I was telling a high school classmate that I had never made a turkey before. For the record that changed this fall, but as of then I hadn’t. She about fell over. She’s like, you are a blogger and you never made a turkey? She said she craves it and then makes one frequently. Same with mashed potatoes. Mmmm not me! I missed that boat! She had always told me that I was a better cook than her. I beg to differ with that statement. I think she can handle her own from the sounds of it!
While out to eat with girlfriends this came up in topic and we discussed how she made turkey and I didn’t. It was interesting to find out I was definitely not the only that was a turkey making virgin! Some people thought they were difficult to make, some didn’t like turkey because it was always dry in their experience and some just never craved it. I can assure you when I tried to make turkey it was far from dry and far from difficult to make because I’m all about ease in the kitchen. My one classmate that complained of dry turkey is going to be invited over for dinner so she can finally have some good turkey that’s for sure!
