Coming home was such a joy because one of my favorite holidays is right around the corner. I absolutely love Thanksgiving. I don't know why. There's something about going for a run that morning and then totally gorging yourself with food so that you feel like total crap the rest of the day that we just love. :) I'm a little sad that I won't be hosting dinner at our house... I love to cook a bird (again, define "normal"). But we're heading to my sisters and I'm excited to be with the family. We're running the Columbus Turkey Trot which is 5 miles and hopefully will score me a pie! I might even have a crazy hair and run the course twice (10 miles means double the food right?)
Since I'm not cooking a meal at home which means that I don't get any left overs, I decided to pick up a
And I will leave you all with a recipe that I just found in our local coupon section of the weekly Sunday paper. I will not be making this for our meal this weekend or to bring to my sister's on Thanksgiving. I'm sure you'll understand why.
White Castle Holiday Stuffing
10 White Castle Hamburgers, no pickles (sorry EMZ)
1.5 cups celery, diced
1.25 tsp. ground thyme
1.5 tsp. ground sage
.75 tsp. ground black pepper
.25 cups chicken broth
In a large mixing bowl, tear the burgers into pieces and add celery and seasonings. Toss and add chicken broth. Toss well. Stuff cavity of turkey just before roasting. Makes about 9 cups (enough for a 10-12 pound turkey). Note: allow 1 hamburger for each pound of turkey, which will be the equivalent to .75 cups of stuffing per pound.
Yep, awesome. They need to add one more line that says "if you didn't already feel like shit from eating the Thanksgiving meal, then we're going to absolutely ensure that you will after eating this stuffing".
I love America...
