Been going through some old handwritten recipes lately trying to save as many as possible from the ravages of time and multiple food stains. Some of them I don't even need an ingredient list to know what is in the recipe I just follow the food Anyway I pulled this one out of the pile and made it for dinner tonight. The husband and last nestling were quite pleased. Hope you will be too. Regrettably no picture this time; hubby and kiddo were hungry.
