@ Kim: Your Requested Recipe

My dear grandmother Mabel made this often when I was a little girl.

I was very ill as a child, & missed a lot of school, I was so lucky to have my grandma to teach me reading, writing, math, cooking and sewing. it was like an old fashioned education.

I can almost see her making this recipe & coaxing me to eat it. We spent a lot of time together.

I love how the memories of breakfast with grandma trigger so many wonderful times we had together.

This recipe is easy, and very good.

Make memories for your family too.
