This month's cooking challenge was a real challenge...not because it was difficult but because I have been out of the country for almost three weeks. I have gotten used to having my "every meal" prepared for me. I have gotten used to choices at each meal, my bed being made and when I returned to reality last Wednesday I expected the pampering to continue....instead, I spent 24 hours unpacking, doing laundry and trying to recover from jet lag....only to come down with a super duper migraine! After three days in bed I knew that this month's cooking challenge was going to look a little different for me.
The November Crazy Cooking Challenge is....fan fare, please.....stuffing! Of course, stuffing means that I must actually stuff something. So, I am taking a little cook's license (kind of like literary license...) and making a side dish that could be called a dressing except the ingredients don't match that definition, because of the cream. It is more like a bread pudding. But, who says that your dressing cannot have cream?
The recipe I selected comes from Cathy's blog, Noble Pig. She has absolutely fabulous recipes and if you haven't visited her, you are really missing out on a super blog!!
