SPECIAL: Extraneous Thanksgiving Strikes Back
As per the usual tradition, we'll foist upon you only one recipe this year:

Cornbread Stuffing:
1/4 cup butter
1 chopped onion and 2 or 3 stalks celery
2 cups chicken broth
1 Cornbread (broken up)
1/4 teaspoon oregano
2 cans (4 oz ea.) diced green chiles
1 can (16 oz) corn
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup chopped pecans

This disgusting blob is what you'll be whipping up for your fine Thanksgiving feast.

Aside from the approximately 18 months it took me to get this up, our second Extraneous Thanksgiving was probably the best one yet. The turkey wasn't undercooked, the recipes weren't totally made up, and we managed to salvage a pretty good meal out of the whole thing. Plus we've got Joel sitting on the table over there looking like Jesus commanding the whole of us to eat, drink, and be merry. That's gotta be worth some extra points in God's book.

After having prepared your delicious cornbread via our previous recipe, destroy it by crumbling it up. Heat your oven to 350. Cook your onion and celery in a frying pan for awhile, then add the broth, chiles, oregano, paprika, salt, pepper. Let it simmer for awhile before adding your cornbread and pecans. Let it dry out a little bit before spooning the concoction into your baking dish. Slip it into the oven for 30 minutes. The rest is up to you!

Ah yes, it wouldn't be Extraneous Thanksgiving without potatoes and bootleg Dreamcast games. What's funny is that actually isn't a bootleg, I think it's one of my FYAYA mix CDs in deceptively delightful packaging.
You know, for all the pumpkin pies we MAKE for Extraneous Thanksgivings, I'm not sure we've actually went and baked or actually eaten one.

Obviously this year's gravy ingredient battle was staged, but I like to think that the heart of it was in the right place.
Good Turkey? It's the way.
