Miss Hughlene’s Chicken and Dressin’
By Nikki Pelezo / Dirt Roads
Miss Hughlene is my neighbor and she is 97 years old and still cooks for herself. In her lifetime she has probably prepared and taken thousands of casseroles to her church, the Union Ridge United Methodist in the Ewell community of Upshur County.

This is how it went and for clarity, I interjected where needed.
