Posing for AmperArt #69 Stuffed & Dressed, Thomas T. Turkey stuffed himself into his finest tux & got all dressed up for Thanksgiving dinner.

Is that an ampertizer he’s offering you?

Stuffing or Dressing?

While deliberating on the title for this piece, I wondered what the difference was between stuffed & dressed, or actually stuffing & dressing. Interestingly, it’s the same stuff (no pun intended) but called one or the other name in different parts of the country. Also, stuffing is usually cooked inside the turkey, while dressing is prepared separately. Here’s a map showing the regional preferences.

Stuffing vs Dressing regional prefs

There are many tips for cooking your Thanksgiving turkey & a great-sounding recipe for cornbread stuffing & dressing at the Butterball website. (These links are not sponsored. I’m just sharing what I’ve come across.)

Turkey Trivia Question:

What are those fancy little paper things called that are placed on turkey drumsticks (& on ampersands, at least in this month’s Stuffed & Dressed piece)? If you know, write it in the comments area. I was always intrigued by them as a kid, as they came in all different pastel colors (like pastel toilet paper—remember that?). My mom would put them on leg of lamb (the fancy paper things, not the toilet paper).

Happy Thanksgiving

to you & your family & friends, including the furry ones. (You will slip them some turkey under the table, won’t you?)

  1. Chaz I just love this! Thank you for your generosity each year in providing placecards. I just love it! You help to make my Thanksgiving more special.

    Be well!

    1. So that’s what they’re called. (I won’t divulge the term here…I’ll let my subscribers keep guessing.) I see you can make your own out of ordinary paper. Must be a lot easier than doing it in Adobe Illustrator!
