Since we are expecting soon, we don't get to slack off while my mom cooks us a Thanksgiving feast this year. We had an early Thanksgiving in September, where mom showed us how it's done. Now it's our turn.
We rinsed the 20lb bird, and put all the innerds in a pot with filtered water. Our new sink is plenty big!
While we slowly simmer the stock, we make the stuffing. First, sauté onions and celery in butter. In another large pot, brown sausage. Then combine it all in the large pot.
Then mix in spices and croutons. Reserve some in a casserole dish to roast later. Yum!
