Thanksgiving is almost here and I’ve got one more terrific recipe to submit for your consideration as you finalize your menu for the big feast: Chestnut Stuffing.This stuffing turned out to be even better than I’d hoped. I like a really homey, traditional, herby, moist-on-the-bottom-crispy-and-golden-on-top kind of stuffing and this recipe (from the back of a package of Melissa’s chestnuts) is exactly that. Plus chestnuts. And the chestnuts do really add to the dish – not just a crunchy texture but also a really subtle sweetness and earthiness.This Chestnut Stuffing is one of several new-to-me recipes I’m including along with some old favorites on this year’s Thanksgiving lineup in our house:

“The Perfect Bird”  – Saveur

Looks like I’ve got a busy few days ahead (and you know I’ll be loving every minute of it). Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
