Another Mom recipe. The picture this time is the actual page of the book that my mother has been cooking out of for years. I’ve already put dibs on this piece of literature when she dies. It’s a nameless cookbook, but several of her dishes come from this book.
I have a fond memory of my mother putting taco seasoning into this dish on accident. I never read the recipe, but I don’t even know why should would have been doing that. I remember there being a spatula and lots of giggling involved in the process. and her trademark “Ohhh, Lesley…look what I didddddd”. Messing up recipes counts as cooking, the memories are classics for me.
No set sides for this one, we didn’t have it a ton, as you can see it required quite a bit of prep. But if it were mine now, I’d say salad and bread. It’s fantastically vintage housewife food – everything fits nicely into the pie and you can get yourself together just in your best dress prior to hubby getting home! 😉
