During the days when times were rough and money was tight I would make this for our dinner. I'm still making it today when I forget to get meat out of the freezer or just what this dish because it is so good. My daughter was over the other week and I didn't know she was coming so I made this dish and it brought tears to her eyes as she remembers me making it when she was a little girl. By the way; her husband loved it too. I might add that this is not for those on a diet. LOL
