Mrs. Pritchett's Cornbread Dressing

Thank you for stopping in for a visit today. Here is a walk down memory lane for me. I am linking to Flashback Friday. For a look in to other Flashbacks check out these other memory makers

My favorite thing in the world has always been Mrs. Pritchett's cornbread dressing. Mrs. Pritchett was my mothers best friend. I called her more times than I can remember asking how to make her dressing. I can still hear her words... Now Nette, I put the onions and green peppers in the blender so Corey and Sebastian (her grandsons) won't know they are in there.... wonderful memories and traditions. Mrs. Pritchett, I made your dressing this year. Momma said, now that is Mrs. Pritchett's dressing! Here is the recipe in her own writing:

Throughout their friendship, Momma and Mrs. Pritchett had a friendly feud over who was older. Her daughter, my sister and myself gave them a surprise 70th birthday party. This is a picture from that party. Momma is on the right and Mrs. Pritchett is on the left.

Thank you for joining me in my walk down memory lane. If you want a truly old fashioned southern cornbread dressing. Well this one's for you! Thank you Mrs. Pritchett for this wonderful pan of dressing.

I read and appreciate every comment. Please let me know you were here. Don't forget to check out these other Flashbacks.

  5. Hi Jeanette...

    Mmmm...Mrs. Pritchett's cornbread dressing sounds sooo good! You know, I had never heard of cornbread dressing until I moved to I am back in Colorado and I don't think anyone here makes it! I guess that I should make some! Hehe! What sweet memories...your Mrs. Pritchett sounds like a wonderful woman! Loved the surprise birthday photo of her and your mom! Sooo sweet!
