My grandma was a wonderful cook (and often spent a lot of time in the kitchen). With 6 daughters, she passed along her love of home cooked food and we have been so lucky to have many of the recipes passed along to us. Have to say the recipe she used for Creamed Soup uses an 'unexpected' ingredient.....evaporated milk! It is so good and reminds me of wonderful childhood memories in Grandma's Kitchen! I've also changed it up to use any other veggies that might be getting 'past the peak of ripeness'.....hope you enjoy it too!
