Usual morning routine. Was woken up by two cats who were fighting over Princess space...

I'm sitting here watching Animal Planet, before NFL Countdown starts, and after seeing a commercial for one of their reality shows I am wondering what any of those goofballs would do if they actually found Bigfoot
I have never seen such a wasted amount of time as watching these shows where they are always on the cusp of finding some elusive (read fantasy) creature, but never do... Funny how they hold my attention when nothign else is on

And earlier I broke out the FP and shredded some cabbage. I am trying a new recipe for coleslaw today. One where you mix the cabbage with sugar, salt and celery seed and leave it sit out to wilt and lose its moisture.

I'm gonna cut up a loaf of bread for stuffing/dressing/filling, and dry it out in the oven in prep for Thursday. I couldn't find unseasoned bread cubes at the store.

I love Mrs. Cubbison's herbed stuffing mix. I add all my own sauteed veg, giblets and stock. Saves time when I only get one day off.

Ah! Forgot about Mrs. Cubbison's. All I could find was Pepperidge Farm preseasoned. And way overpriced.

Any of the packaged ones, seasoned or otherwise are waaay overpriced.

For years I just buy a loaf or two of the cheapest sandwich bread, then freeze them thoroughly. Once frozen, I take 4 slices at a time and cut into cubes about twice the size I want. Put them into my dehydrator and in a few hours I have all the dried bread cubes I need.

Freezing the bread makes it so much easier to cut into cubes. It doesn't squish down when you slice it.

Sonofagun. My most often used burner on my stove won't light.
I think I'll do some monitor shopping for new stoves and dream.

Great idea to freeze it, Katie!

I buy 4 boxes every year for those "I need stuffing" moments in the off season.
