Stuffing/Dressing

Tell me more about your dressing: do you include boiled eggs, giblets, seafood, nuts? In your mind, what are the regional variations in stuffing ingredients?

Even though I know the distinction between stuffing and dressing, I still find myself using the terms interchangeably. Is that a southern thing? Or perhaps it’s a product of the cultural goulash that was my upbringing. As a Texan raised by a Minnesotan mother and a Coloradoan father, my word choice is often schizophrenic: coke/pop, supper/dinner, aunt/aunt (pronounced ant), y’all/you guys, envelope/envelope (pronounced onvelope), etc. Speaking of such things, have you seen this awesome map that illustrates the regional terms for soda (or is it pop? or coke?)?
