This morning while I was making my stuffing I remembered how my Dad would buy day old bread, cut it into cubes and lay it out on the kitchen table for it to dry out even more. I don't remember him placing it on cookie sheets to dry it in the oven but he might have dried the bread that way. He would add his own spices to it and of course saute the onions and celery to add to the stuffing. I have never made mine from scratch. I think he started using the bag stuffing after we moved to Florida, it was probably too humid there to dry out the bread.
Wishing all of you and yours a wonderful safe day. This little video really says all I think of during this special season of Thanksgiving. May we have an attitude of gratitude all year long.
