A Recipe in the Respite

Presumably, I'm taking a break.  Work has quite consumed me, which is not my preferred relationship with it, but for the time, it's got me.  There will be stories again, soon.  There will be.  But I've been wondering, was there more time before?  Oh, interesting world!  It's a good thing I love you so much.

So for now, I think I'll just offer my two-generations-old stuffing recipe, as Thanksgiving is on its way.  I usually add veggie sausage with the first sauteed ingredients, like for protein and texture, I guess.  I don't know if there's some meat substance that people usually use in stuffing, but if there is, you can use that instead.  

Gobble-Gobble Stuffing

4 tablespoons butter
1 cup celery, chopped
½ cup onion chopped
1 cup mushrooms, chopped
¾ cup walnuts, chopped
1 granny smith apple, chopped
2 cups of veggie broth (approximate)
Salt (if needed, veggie broth is often salty)
1 bag of stuffing breadcrumbs

Melt butter in a large pan. 
Sautee celery, onion and mushrooms until tender. 
Add walnuts and apple. 
Toss in breadcrumbs.
Separately bring broth to a boil. 
Ladle some broth on top of mix and stir. 
Add more broth if mix seems dry.

Cover and let stand 5-10 minutes to steam. 
Serve now or place into a casserole dish and bake at 375 until slightly toasted on top.
