Oh God, Thanksgiving - Update!

The bread came out of the oven delicious and golden. I also forgot strangely enough to name the bread, which is challah. It's my one of my four yeast breads I can make that has a 100% success rate: the others are white bread, brioche, and croissants. To say I find this weird when I can burn coffee cake, cookies (all kinds), have yet to pull off frying anything with a success rate higher than 75% is an understatement. I also burn rolls of any kind, which makes no sense but also kind of goes with the WTF theme of my cooking experience.

Adding here my current favorite Fastest Meal You Can Possibly Make With Just Your Cupboard:

Stuffing in General Casserole - 4 to 6 people
1 box stuffing (Stovetop, Really Fancy, Generic, whatever)
1 can of Cream of Mushroom soup (cream of: chicken, celery, whatever)
1 to 2 cups of broccoli (any vegetable or mix)
1 package of fresh mushrooms (1 can)
2 cups of chicken

1 cup cheese, shredded
1/4 - 1/2 cup onion
1 can water chestnuts
really anything here

Preheat oven to 350 F.
Make stuffing and set aside
Mix chicken, vegetables, mushrooms, and soup.
(Variation: add cheese and/or sauted onion.)
Mix in stuffing.
(Variation: put chicken mix et al in first and cover with stuffing.)
Bake for 35 minutes.
(Variation: Remove, sprinkle with cheese, bake until melted)

I fell in some kind of creepy infatuation with stuffing. So far, I'm up to four variations, using random foods to see what works. Hint: anything. My leftover variation was exclusively leftovers I found in the fridge mixed with stuffing. Dear God, it was magic.

God, I'm hungry now.

additions that also add a little zing to stuffing: diced granny smith (or any tart apple), a handful of chopped nuts (mmm, pecans), and golden raisins

diced and roasted butternut squash

sausage chunks, browned, and chopped roasted chestnuts

You can make all my favorite kinds of bread? I may have loved you before......
