Only in York County

Can I get a receipt for that recipe book?

I asked before how someone from York County 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)
