Nothing smells more like the holidays to me than good ol’ cornbread stuffing. However, stuffing tends to not be the prettiest dish on that holiday serving table. Next to the golden turkey, the bright and happy sweet potatoes, or that glorious bowl of cranberry sauce… the stuffing seems to be more for taste and smell than show.
Coming from a large and mixed family with its share of egos, hotheads, and show-offs (we all have ’em!)… I feel that over time I have become an unofficial expert on how to handle the chaos and stress that can ensue during the holidays.
Your family is your blood and typically you love them unconditionally, no matter what that gossipy aunt or spoiled cousin said at the last big holiday get-together. However, once people start having some eggnog and discussing politics or how their kid’s college choice is the best… you will reach a limit of how annoyed, frustrated, stressed, or freaked out you can be.
