It's holiday time at Cape Abilities Farm. The beautiful Christmas trees have arrived - along with other delights for gifts and your holiday table. Remember, all sales benefit Cape Abilities and our work supporting people with disabilities across Cape Cod.
We can't sell you the turkey, but you can get most of the fixings for this stuffing at our farm stand.
114 oz. bag of bread croutons
2 cups chopped onion
1 1/2 cups chopped celery
1/2 cup butter
1 egg, beaten
1-2 cups chicken broth
2 tsp. sage
2 tsp. poultry seasoning
1 tsp. marjoram
1 tsp. salt, or to taste
1 tsp. pepper, or to taste
1/2 tsp. thyme
optional - 1 or 2 tart apples peeled and chopped
Melt butter over medium heat on the stove in a large skillet. Add the onions, celery, and optional apples. Cook until onions become soft. If not using apples, the onions and celery can be mixed in with the rest of the ingredients without cooking them first.
Put the crotons in a large mixing bowl. Add the celery and onion mixture. Then add all of the seasonings. Mix well.
Pour in the chicken broth about 1/3 cup at a time so that the mixture doesn't become too soggy. Mix with a fork. Don't get the stuffing too wet. Add the egg and mix well.
This recipe can be used in the turkey or baked by itself at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for approximately 40 minutes. To cook this bread stuffing recipe in a slow cooker, gently transfer it to a greased slow cooker. Then cook for 1 hour on high, then turn down to low for 2-3 hours. Check it about once an hour. Stir and add more broth, if needed.

Cape Abilities in Falmouth has been offering a monthly program to help participants stay healthy, lose weight and have fun. The Nutrition Club meets monthly for an educational talk on topics such as healthy snacks (yogurt, celery with peanut butter, apples or popcorn instead of potato chips, candy bars or doughnuts), eating habits to avoid, relaxation techniques, healthy holiday eating and exercise. Each meeting includes optional, private weigh-ins so participants can keep track of their progress, and everyone brings nonperishable food items for donation to the Falmouth Service Center food pantry. Then the group heads over to Leary Amusement Center on Main Street in Falmouth for bowling. The Nutrition Center is open to Cape Abilities members, parents and advocates, and staff, too, so everyone can get healthy!
