MY Thanksgiving Main Course

Buttery mashed potatoes
and home-style stuffing
which cradle creamy gravy.

Spice Morphs to Beauty

Bread crumbs, cranberries, sausage
Seasoning adds touch
A big hit with guest each year
Spice morphs to beauty
Table feels complete
Stuffing rocks...
Yum!

*I am thankful for all of my beautiful friends here at the Soup…and for lovely judges like Gwen who take their time to offer us such fun contests.  Yes, I am trying to 'butter up' the judge a little but this poem is about stuffing -n- Thanksgiving so makes it ok, right? :)
