It begins with this:
The gravy in its early stage:
This is the making of the wild rice stuffing with cranberries and chestnuts. Selene starts by sauteing onions, celery, and mushrooms in butter; she adds home made vegetable broth, brings it to a boil - rice poured in.
With flashlight and scissors in hand, Selene goes out into the night to gather Thyme from her herb garden.
The chopped thyme and chestnuts go into the cooking stuffing.
It's ready for tomorrow...
