Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Tastes and looks good on a Christmas buffet. When I make Christmas dinner for my family, I like to have red, green, and yellow, like squash. Different things like that, to make a pretty table. My children tasted duck, goose, and everything while they were growing up. I made sure. And they had rice dressing instead of cornbread dressing. Harold loved it. Rice dressing is a Louisiana specialty. You use rice, ground meat, and all your spices, the trinity: celery, green pepper, and onions, and I always add garlic. Garlic is always in all my food. I have a spicy Louisiana seasoning...cayenne pepper, and good things like that. It's spicy.
