Cook’s Quip: Barbara Baronas, member of Central Texas Electric Cooperative, sent us a funny story about dressing: “While I won’t include a recipe for the stuff you put in the turkey, I thought you might like to hear what my grandfather, Owen Yoder, always said about it: ‘If you have one helping, it’s called dressing. Your second helping is called filling, and your third helping is called stuffing!’”
