    this screams Thanksgiving to me, and the thought that it can be made the night before and cooked off the day of, is a huge bonus!

    Another wonderful post! Thanks for posting this. I think I might save this and make this along with my cornbread dressing for Thanksgiving. We have "puritans" in our family that won't eat cornbread dressing - ha! They will love this!
    Have a great day!
