Mom always seemed to make this on her busy days, usually Monday which was always wash day back then....She was such a wonderful cook and always put together a meal that was delicious and so quick. This was one of our favorites and still is whenever I make it for my family. As I tell my family Mom made 30 minutes meals before they became a hit show. I miss her so much and it seems by sharing her recipes she is still close by.
