I found this recipe a few years ago and decided to incorporate it into the traditional Thanksgiving dinner for my then boyfriend and his parents. They were visiting from out of state and the father was at stage four throat cancer. Harry (the dad) was a very outspoken and candied character, so I wasn't expecting the compliment I got; He asked where I "bought" the dinner from, and when I told him that everything was made from scratch, he raised his eyebrows, got up, and got thirds. He died a few months later, and I have the knowledge that Harry had a great holiday dinner!
