Chuck Wagon Dinner

Tammy T


This is a very simple dinner that goes back in time. The time when foods were simple and fed alot. I am putting together a cookbook for these times. I love old country cooking and love to bring them back for simple pleasures for todays busy schedules, maybe just for a moment, to slow it down just a little and enjoy.

This came from who else but Mr.Food.
