I had to dream up a side dish to go with the 2 ingredients above.  After much thought, I decided on a stuffing recipe.  The ingredients are simple and readily available to you at most supermarkets.  The taste?  Well let’s just say that there was not much chatter at the dinner table.  That’s usually a great sign that my concoction was a success.
