somehow among the 1000’s of pies we are baking for thanksgiving, we have to have our traditional family dinner.  it would be so easy to just skip it all & be simple, but i crave the stuffing & giblet gravy.  this morning i asked which recipes y’all would want & the winners were, brown sugar green beans & cornbread stuffing.  we have a wonderful recipe box full of family, cafe & friends recipes that has all of these.  we are nearly out of the boxes, FOREVER.  think we have 6.  seriously.  here’s to writing a new cookbook or 3, but for now, here are some recipes for y’all’s family table.

1 cup chopped yellow onions
