But there were no mashed potatoes or stuffing to accompany the roasted bird. After I finished graduate school, I attempted to serve stuffing complete with chestnuts, fresh rosemary and sage that never really passed the taste test of the Murai sisters. But I bet this rice based dressing will work with your older relatives this season. Wash the sweet rice then place in a rice cooker with the appropriate amount of water and set aside.

Loki Norse god of mischief and all-around troublemaker somehow circumvented the deal by fashioning an arrow from the branch of the mistletoe of which Frigga failed to include in her original bargain.

It was commonly given as a treatment for fertility by the Druids and much care and secrecy went about in the yearly harvest.
