Stovetop Stuffing Creator Dies

Awww, and just before Thanksgiving, we have this sad news here in Indiana. Ruth Siems, a Purdue trained home economist invented the instant stuffing in 1971 while at General Foods. She had a heart attack on Nov. 13 in Newburgh, Ind. From the AP article:

Siems' brother, David, said she found that precise bread crumb size was the secret in developing an instant stuffing. Kraft Foods, which now owns the Stove Top brand, sells about 60 million boxes of the five-minute stuffing each year around Thanksgiving.
