Your menu sounds wonderful Lovina....I would have eaten a little of each thing 🙂 I like everything you had.....
The turkey salad recipe you posted sounds wonderful too.
Would you give us your Cheese Ball recipe ?
By the way , what is overnight salad ?
What a lovely post, as usual, and an amazing feast! Interesting the table is set with the plates turned upside down?
I've not heard of express salad-what are the ingredients?
It has been strongly suggested by cooks as well as physicians that you NOT put dressing/stuffing in the turkey any more. The risk of bacteria is too great and illnesses have occurred due to this habit. We want to keep our amish cook and her family healthy. Please stop putting dressing inside those turkeys..........it does not cook properly. Better to be safe than sorry.....
Please tell the amish cook that doctors and published cooking experts do not recommend placing stuffing/dressing inside turkey to cook. The dressing does not reach the required temperature to kill bacteria. I would not want the Amish cook or her family and friends to end up with food poisoning due to this cooking process. Please continue your great column as I enjoy reading about your family and friends.....
