Holiday Recipe Spectacular – Side Dish – Connecticut Meat Stuffing

“Connecticut” because the recipe comes from my family’s long-time friends The Ganleys.  We met them while living at Andrews Air Force Base when I was probably six.  Jim (from CT) and Diana had an older son close to my age and a younger son just about my brother’s age.  Over the next few years, we spent many evenings and weekends with them.  Lucky me, that meant Star Wars, G.I. Joes and Transformers.  Barbie, who?  I wouldn’t dare get her involved!  However, I remember it being endless fun hanging out with the Ganleys.  One visit I remember the boys’ dad had built them a two-story “clubhouse” out of a couple refrigerator boxes.  We had a whole afternoon of fun!  They even visited us in Hawaii for a week when the boys and I were in our teens.  I haven’t seen their sons in a good ten years, but Jim and Diana came to my wedding and sometimes they’re with us on vacation and I really enjoy them…just like an aunt and uncle to me.  So cheers to the Ganleys, from my family to yours!  And Merry Christmas to everyone reading this!!!
