APA citation filter: can I indicate the page number only once in a sentence that contains multiple quotes by the same author?

An example, pulled out of thin air to illustrate what I mean:
Jones (2001) recommends that eggs be cooked according to the "poaching method", that is, without a shell in boiling water, the "hard boiling method, which requires that the shell be left on the egg", or the fried method, which is described as needing a shallow pan (p. 55).
Given that the separate quotations all come from page 55 of Jones (2001), is it okay to make single reference to the page number, or do all of the quotations need separate page numbers? (The answer seems obvious to me, but I'm not the APA...)
