SEP-'73, I came to TX (from MI) to 'visit' my sister & her husband...10 days later, I was employed by an insurance company in downtown Dallas! What a stretch for a small town/country girl...but as you can see, I never left Dallas to live elsewhere! While working at the ins. co., I became good friends w/a 'grandma figure' dear lady named Hilda. She was so good to me during the 5 years we worked together. When I became engaged, she gave me a wonderful wedding shower gift...a 1-1/2 quart 'French White' casserole dish, along w/this recipe, and ALL the non-perishable ingredients listed.
