I am having a pretty hectic day and have unfortunately not found the time to put together a very creative post for today, but I thought I would at least post the second installment of Food Network Magazine’s Thanksgiving “Mix and Match” guide. I hope the “Turkey Mix and Match” installment from last week helped you navigate the turkey decision-making process! Now onto the stuffing.. Different dish, same problem: the fact that there are about a million different recipe options out there doesn’t help indecisive people like me one bit, so I personally think that these guides are just fantastic. There’s just one thing I would add that the guide misses out: as I’ve said before, your stuffing doesn’t not have to be bread based! You can forgo bread altogether and use a grain like wild rice, red rice, quinoa, farro, or a combination of these for a unique alternative to traditional stuffing.
I’m also attaching a useful article about stuffing options that I found a few days ago on Whole Story (the Whole Foods blog) . This blog is another great source of food inspiration!
In good health,
