this recipe is one of my mama's favorites. i had a hard time deciding if i wanted to share any of her recipes, they are very special to me, especially now that she no longer remembers. she turned 82 on feb 17 and recently suffered yet another fall and broken hip, along with dementia. i have been remembering all the times i would call her while in the middle of preparing one of her dishes just to hear her voice and tell me if i am doing everything right, or say "how many times have i told you"! any way, it is one of her oldest recipes and i am sharing it to honor her. i hope you enjoy it
