Comment: This recipe was from the kitchen of Mary E. Keel, my Mom, who died in 1993.  Many happy memories came to me while typing this recipe as it was my Mom's way of fixing the turkey and dressing when us kids were growing up. We always looked forward to Thanksgiving Day, as it was a special day when family and church friends got together with people in every room laughing, visiting and giving thanks to God for all His abundant blessings on us all. Mom and Dad are gone now, as many of your folks are, but we can hold on to those memories and still share this time of the year with those of our families and with our dear church families of today, and carry on the wonderful tradition of being with others at this time of year and sharing our blessings.
