Grandma's Stuffed Celery


"My grandma always made stuffed celery at Thanksgiving and Christmas. As kids, we were always so hungry before the holiday meal we would sneak and get a piece of celery to curb our appetite. It was nearly all gone by meal time and we always got fussed at with hint of a grin from Grandma. Now I never have holiday meals without it!"

FANTASTIC! This not only was tasty, it was easy to do, very colorful, and enjoyed by all. I followed the recipe exactly and used a #32 tip to fill. Thank you Sherilyn for sharing!
