Preparing Bread for Thanksgiving Turkey Stuffing

I’m prepping for roasting my turkey tomorrow, ahead of Thursday. This allows me to make the gravy and slice the turkey, get all the turkey packaged and into the refrigerator, only having to re-heat turkey in gravy for Thursday’s dinner. That means having all the other time on Thursday to make the rest of the meal.

Wednesday is Pie day. Tradition.

Today I am making onion bread, egg bread, and whole grain spelt bread. Currently onion bread is in the oven, egg bread is on it’s last bowl rise, and spelt whole grain is soaking in buttermilk.

What is all this bread for? Stuffing the turkey, of course! I love stuffing. In The Bird Stuffing is heaven.

I usually put raisins in it, sometimes walnuts too. Start with onion and celery in butter, then add rubbed sage, oh the scents are incredible! Chicken stock, some sea salt, a couple of eggs (wisked in), any other things I want added, then the bread sliced into cubes and added, mixed around, stuffed into the bird, rest into a casserole.

Culture, still haven’t gotten any

The last regular post I wrote on this site was about Culture, in February. It’s now nearing the end of August and I haven’t put a bit more of time into obtaining any sour dough or any other cultures.

I’m very unhappy with myself about my non-action, and will try to redeem the situation very soon. I don’t mean try, I mean, do it.

Update on the turkey

The new Turkey, Free Range

Yes, a Free Range fresh Turkey. Big enough at 17 some pounds.

I have another turkey in the freezer for later. 🙂

So I’ll be roasting the turkey soon. Prep for stuffing under way:
