OLD-FASHIONED CORNBREAD DRESSING
1 c. yellow cornmeal
1 c. self-rising flour
1/4 c. sugar
1 c. milk or buttermilk
2 eggs
1/4 c. vegetable oil
2 c. diced celery
1 c. chopped onion
1 1/2 tbsp. sage (more or less to taste)
Salt & pepper to taste
Turkey or chicken broth
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Cover bottom of iron skillet with vegetable oil and heat in oven for about 5 minutes. (Do not let it get too hot.) Stir together cornmeal, flour and sugar in mixing bowl.
In another bowl, beat together milk, eggs and oil; add all at once to cornmeal mixture and stir just until moistened. Remove skillet from oven and pour batter into it. Return to oven and bake 20 to 25 minutes or until top is golden brown. Remove from skillet to cool.
When cornbread is cool, crumble into a large mixing bowl. Add celery, onion, sage, salt and pepper and mix well. Place mixture into a 13"x9"x2" pan. Pour turkey or chicken broth evenly over mixture until it reaches the level of the cornbread mixture in the pan. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about an hour.

Six (6) Key Things to Do to Outsmart Alzheimer’s

www.mariashriver.com
S = Social Smarts Dining out, attending sporting events, playing bingo, volunteering, visiting relatives and friends and/or attending religious services—had a 70 & lower rate of cognitive decline over 12 years than did seniors with a lower rate of social interactions.
M = Meal Smarts. Diets from around the world can reduce disease, improve longevity and protect the health of the brain. Here’s more: Brain-smart eating includes many of the foods and beverages you already have come to know and love: dark chocolate, coffee, wine and much more, but all in moderation.
A = Aerobic Smarts. The more you move, the fewer brain cells you lose. Exercise may even boost the production of new brain cells. Physically fit people also tend to make better decisions, have faster reaction times and mental-processing speeds, multitask more effectively and improve your ability to acquire new knowledge and understanding.
R = Resilience-to-Stress Smarts. Long-term, unremitting stress is bad for your entire body, including your brain.  Meditation, deep breathing, massage and other relaxing activities help to keep the brain resilient, so it more easily weathers daily stressors.
T = Train Your Brain Smarts. The more you challenge your brain — by learning new languages, playing musical instruments, contemplating brain teasers and more — the better your brain’s ability to fend off Alzheimer’s. 
S = Sleep Smarts. As we sleep, our brain resets, integrating everything that happened during the day. New experiences and insights are consolidated with older memories. When we sleep too few hours or not deeply enough, we not only feel foggy and less alert, but also prematurely age our brains and raise our risk for developing Alzheimer’s disease.
