But who would have thought that the glamorous film star actually did toil over a hot stove?
We are taking a brief break from ginger today to acknowledge Thanksgiving, this wondrous American observance of gustation and gratitude.

Thanks to friend Dana Hall for sending us the fascinating New York Times article on Marilyn's stuffing recipe--just in time for this week's feast. Here's a link to the full article, which contains a more legible version of the recipe.
