Here is another of our old family recipes. The cooks have gone on, but their memories remain in the food they so lovingly prepared for us when we were young.
As children, we always loved visiting Aunt Marjorie and Uncle Luther, my father's brother. They lived on a small farm, and had so many different kinds of fowl. She used to cook with tiny little Bantam Hen eggs - I think it took 3 of those to equal one hen's egg.
Oh, the memories!
