Stuffing Recipe
Stuffing Recipe

My great grandfather (my mother’s grandfather) immigrated from Canada to the United States. He, along with my other relatives, were French Canadians. When he came over, he brought along with him a stuffing recipe.  This recipe is a very important aspect of my family’s history. He used to cook it, then he taught my grandmother (Gamma) to make it, and she will now teach me how to make it because I realize this recipe is important to her (and me), which is why I won’t let it die out. Eventually, when I have children, I will teach them how to make it. Not only that, but it is amazing. It is not like the stove top stuffing or the pre-packaged stuffing, it is so much more. My grandmother (Gamma) does not make it that often because it takes a lot of time and effort and it is for special occasions only. Usually, we have it on Thanksgiving and Christmas, that's it. I get so excited when we get closer to Thanksgiving, for this reason. Even then, there is barely any leftovers. It's a good thing we host Thanksgiving, because before anyone eats, I put some stuffing aside for later.
