This is one of my favorite sensory memories.

My Mom and I found this recipe and made it as a Sunday Dinner Treat.

I have been cooking it every since and love it.

Family and Friends go crazy and when I make it and now I have to take extra leftovers to work with me to share with my friends at lunch time.

Mom is gone now, but this recipe still brings back some very fond memories everytime I cook it!!
