RECIPE BACKSTORY
Yet another recipe found in the bottom of my mother's recipe box during our Thanksgiving clean-out... This one is written by my step father on the back of a 1993 faxed notice of the new substitute teacher requirements in the West Warwick School System for measels, mumps, and rubella innoculations. Hmm? Sometimes the paper is as interesting as the recipe itself!
