Preparing something from the '50s was hard - because I wasn't born till the '60s. However, while going through my grandmother's old recipes, I remember the story of my father never having plain vegetables till he went to college (Penn State). Everything my grandmother made had a sauce. My Grammy was a little upset when she found out that my dad liked the plain simple veggies just as much as hers. Peas, Potatoes and Dill is a fantastic blending of flavors. I hope you make it and enjoy it as much as I have!
