I have no idea why you are questioning if stuffing should make it to the table.  Have you hit your head again?

In my house, stuffing beats potatoes any day! No question! If you are undecided, perhaps you need a new stuffing recipe? :)

Usually, I roast carrots and potatoes with a sliced onion.  I've been thinking about stuffing lately.  My son doesn't like stuffing so, I boiled him some red potatoes and steamed some baby carrots.  I did make stuffing, I made homemade stuffing in the oven...to be honest, I like the boxed stuff better :)

Colleen, I love your comfort food pictures. I voted for roasted potatoes, but honestly, I probably would have made both, hehe.

oh dear now i just feel real greedy, we had pie, sweet potato mash, green beans, cream corn, stuffing and carrots followed by home made banana cake  :unsure:

 

I like the box stuffing too but i add butter and water and bake it in the oven so it gets a crispy top, I dont like it all stodgy :(

Oh my, yes! When I say "stuffing" I mean I make the whole thing from scratch. I do buy the seasoned bread cubes but then I add diced sauteed celery and onions and cooked Italian sausage and sage and thyme and salt and pepper. I moisten with cream of chicken soup or with chicken broth and then bake it for an hour until the top gets browned and crunchy. Then I serve it with chicken gravy seasoned with soy sauce and curry powder.

 

THAT's the stuffing we like better than we like potatoes.  :) Stove top stuffing right out of the box? Probably not so much.

Unless the stufffing is made from scratch, I'd say potatoes and fresh carrots - not much of a cooked carrot gal - unless it they are cooked in like a roast or stew or soup. :)

Also - It looks like a nice dinner and you know how to pour a glass of wine, my friend! :)
