SPARK OF DIVINITY CONGREGATION, PALMYRA, NY & ANNA'S CORNBREAD DRESSING
The building was built for and lived in by O. J. Garlock who founded Garlock Packing Company in our town. Garlock Packing Company has been sold, but is still the largest business in our town and many of the people in our town and village work there.
After Mr. Garlock passed the building was turned into the Garlock House Restaurant. There use to be apartments upstairs that were rented and the restaurant was on the first floor. It lasted for many years until the people that owned it, retired. After that there were several restaurants in there. For the last several years the upper floors were rented, but the restaurant was vacant until it was remodeled into offices - but did not get rented. Finally Spark of Divinity Congregation rented it this year for their religious services.
ANNA'S CORNBREAD DRESSING
Someone asked for cornbread dressing. Jean, Marilyn or I couldn't remember if we put it on or not. Marilyn said she will have to go through and write down every recipe. Anyway, here is one I got when we were at Pinecrest, one time. It is a southern recipe.
3 cups cornbread crumbs
3 cups white bread crumbs
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped onions
3 cups chicken stock, enough to moisten crumbs well
1/2 cup butter melted
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons pepper
Mix all ingredients together well and stuff into turkey or bake in a covered dish along with turkey or chicken.
NOTE: If you like more celery and onion add it. You may also want to add some chopped bell pepper.
