Comments from Barb
Excellent recipe! The waffles cooked in 4 minutes in my waffle iron and I got 18 waffles out of this recipe. As the previous commenter said, it was easy.

Crunchy Peach Crisp

3 1/2 c. unsweetened frozen sliced peaches, thawed and drained (reserve juice)
2 tbsp. honey, warmed
2 tsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice

1/4 tsp. ground ginger
3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 c. quick-cooking oats
2 tbsp. ground pecans
1 tbsp. butter, softened
1 tbsp. water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8 x 8 inch glass baking dish with vegetable spray. In a medium-size bowl, toss peach slices with 1/4 cup of the reserved juice, 1 tablespoon of the honey and lemon juice. Put fruit mixture into pan. Combine topping ingredients crumble over fruit. Bake for 25 minutes or until topping is golden brown. Service with frozen yogurt or ice cream.

I followed this recipe exactly and found that after baking the Peach Crisp the oatmeal cooked itself. I think this may have been caused by the 1/4 cup reserved juice from the peaches. Next time I will omit the reserved juice.

Holiday Turkey Stuffing

20 slices white bread for 20 lb. turkey or 1 slice per lb. of turkey
1 1/2 c. chopped celery
1 c. diced onions
1/2 lb. butter
1 tsp. parsley
1 tsp. thyme
1 tsp. sweet marjoram
Salt & pepper

Allow bread to become stale the day before making stuffing. It is important for the bread to be very stale. In large skillet add butter, celery, onions, parsley, thyme, sweet marjoram, salt and pepper. Saute until vegetables are half cooked. Simmer for a few minutes. Grate bread using large side of grater. Add grated bread to the sauteed vegetables, stirring until the bread crumbs absorb all the butter and are well mixed. Clean inside of turkey very well. Dry inside thoroughly. Spoon in warm bread crumbs into cold dry turkey. Do not pack down too firmly. Stuffing must be fluffy. Any excess stuffing may be put into neck cavity. Proceed to roast turkey in the usual way. Be sure not to get the stuffing wet when basting turkey.

This was the first time I had ever cooked a turkey in brown bags but it was so good. The skin was a bit greasy but the meat was juicy and tender. I think I will do this again on Thanksgiving.
