A Stove Top Haiku


Stuffing from a box
Just add water and butter
I'd like some more, please.

To accompany our organic free-range Thanksgiving turkey prepared Judy-bird style, we had roasted organic brussels sprouts and fingerling potatoes with pancetta and thyme, homemade giblet gravy and...Stove Top stuffing.

No homemade gourmet stuff. No mixture of cornbread, sage, fancy charcuterie, chestnut or random autumn fruit here. Just a familiar red box filled with dehydrated seasoned bread crumbs that cook in just 5 minutes and fond childhood memories of my parents doing their best at creating the most American Thanksgiving meal that they could.

Only the best for my family.


(Note: This post was in no way, shape or form paid for by Kraft. I honestly like Stove Top stuffing. Yeah, yeah, take away my food blogger badge already.)

I get down with Mrs. Cubbinson's instead: she was a Lincoln Height's gal with her og bakery being here as well. It stuffs my tofu "turkey" most adequately.

My response in haiku:

I am more of a
Mrs. Cubbison's dressing
fan myself, don't hate

(P.S. also a stickler for not saying 'stuffing' unless it was actually stuffed into another edible item... no, my GI tract doesn't count)

How can I take away your food blogger badge when I've posted my families (so food politically incorrect) cranberry Jell-o mold for crying out loud? Sometimes tradition wins over politics!

I'm not being a 'hater' but am curious why you would you serve this 'product' when you took the time to purchase an organic turkey? I ate some of this for the first time in a decade and got the worst MSG headache that lasted hours and even into the next day.
