Drunken Cornish Hens!
Cornish hens are intimidating to some people... but they need not be! This is a very easy way to prepare them... and they taste great too!
*** I like to make a stuffing/dressing, mashed potatoes & gravy, frozen peas and cranberry sauce. What a festive - comfort foods meal !!!
*** Instead of making a big pie, I like to make mini individual pies for dessert... I usually make two or more kinds of pies.
*** Many of us have our "family traditions", many of us just "wing it", how ever your family does things.... Bless You All... and enjoy trying this meal...
*** This is not my photo... but one from the internet... this is how stuffed Cornish hens look.
