Thanksgiving to me was not about the turkey or being thankful. Thanksgiving to me was all about that stuffing.
I love stuffing. I can eat stuffing all day. Here we put two traditional dishes together combining soul food and thanksgiving. Sweet tart cranberries cut through the rich crisp ones of the turkey and savory stuffing.
