It's random or nothin', people.

Wassup, my internet peeps? Anyone still out there, hoping against hope that I'll post something, ANYTHING, of substance?

Yeah, well substance it ain't, but here's what's up down here in Texas.

Vacuum cleaner still half-broke.

High-falutin', newfangled dryer not heating. Since it was a floor model, can you say NO WARRANTY?

My house is oh, so cluttered this week. Yes, I mean more than usual. I ordinarily do a fairly good job of keeping the public areas and the girls' bedrooms straight, if not dust-free. Right now? Not so much. Maybe it has something to do with the grillion piles of laundry waiting to be washed AND DRIED.

So tired of hearing about and talking about politics. It's over, it's done with, we can't change it anytime soon, so let's pray and move on.

50 Days Until Christmas? Are you kidding me? And what, 3 weeks until Thanksgiving? EEK! I'd better get out the Amy Grant CDs.

I wanted to lose about 40 pounds between July and the holidays. My 25 pound loss ain't shabby, but I wish it were more.

And finally: I have to make stuffing for a church dinner, and I will not be attempting cornbread stuffing. That's my mom's gig. I will confess that I absolutely LOVE Stovetop Stuffing, but I'm trying to think of a way to make it jazzier for the stuffing snobs. Any suggestions?

Peace out, y'all.

Wait, no warranty on the floor model of a DRYER?? What, did they have it hooked up and were drying towels in it just for show? Oy!

As for the stuffing add-ins, have you considered:

• cranberries
• raisins
• mushrooms
• pecans
• chestnuts
• shredded carrots
• wild rice
• orange rind
• crushed pineapple
• crumbled bacon bits
• bittersweet chocolate
• diced jalapeƱo
• peanuts
• spinach

That's everything I can think of off the top of my head. Probably you wouldn't want to add all of it to one batch. :P

I love Stove Top Stuffing! Try using chicken broth instead of water. :-) Just an option.

You might even find some turkey broth out this time of year.

I bought four boxes of stuffing the other day and am considering eating them all TODAY. I just really want some stuffing....

My mom gets rave reviews on her stuffing every year and it's plain ol' Stove Top with extra bread torn up in it, made with chicken broth. That's IT!

Stove Top is my new boyfriend.

I actually prefer Stove Top stuffing to homemade stuffing!

Amy @ Experience Imagination said...

Wait, you mean people actually make it with water? I figured chicken broth was a given.

Huh. Learn something new every day.
