Can I get a receipt for that recipe book?

I didn’t want to miss giving some recognition to the winner of last week’s pronunciation contest on how we might say “recipe.”
New commenter Bonnie gets it right in one. What did she say?

We old time Yorkers are known to call a recipe a “receipt.”
I should know, because I’m an old time York gal through and through.

That’s right! Way to go, Bonnie!
Now, for the bonus question, what about any of these?
1. suite
2. milk
3. irons
4. wash
5. clothes
6. water
7. roof
8. Super-extra-bonus: Roots (the auction/flea market in Lancaster County)

About Joan Concilio

My name is Joan and I'm a lifelong Yorker. Throughout high school and college, I swore I was getting out of here as soon as possible. Now, a few years later, I can't think of anywhere I'd rather be. I love my town, and I hear every day from readers who love their towns, too. So please, connect with me and let's share what makes life in York County great. I'm here to help you enjoy this place as much as I do!
