Ingredients:  
1 cup finely chopped celery

8 cups dry bread cubes
¾ to 1 cup chicken or turkey broth

Directions:
Directions:
One or two days before cooking, tear bread into small pieces and spread out to air dry – toss occasionally to help drying. This usually takes my whole dining room table.

In a saucepan cook celery and onion in butter till tender but not brown; remove from heat and stir in sage, salt and pepper. Place the dry bread cubes in a large mixing bowl. Add the onion mixture. Taste test for amount of sage, salt and pepper. Drizzle with enough broth to moisten, tossing lightly. Put mixture in a casserole and bake covered at 350 degrees for 30 minutes (longer if recipe is doubled or tripled).

Personal Notes:
A side note about how Pearl would make her Thanksgiving Dressing. When eating out
she would make sure that she would bring the leftover bread home with her. She would
then place it in a plastic bag and put in the freezer to save for her Thanksgiving Dressing
