Cornbread Turkey Dressing

I made this dressing recipe my first Thanksgiving meal I cooked myself, well, Mal's dad helped, a lot. I was so green at cooking, and so pregnant. My Mom always made a more traditional herb stuffing with lots of sage and regular bread crumbs. I, of course, had to be different. For a few years I used the boxed cornbread stuffing bits. Then I had one of those hit the head moments when I realized I had the best corn bread ever, why not use that instead? So I've included my corn bread recipe here as well and hope you will go that route as well.
