“I made this recipe for the first time when I was on the spot when my husband's vegeterain parents showed up the for weekend. I am not sure where I got it or whether I just threw it together then. But even for the meat eaters in the family, it was a hit. My kids always asked for it as they grew up and called it "Grandama and Grandpa's Surprise". I still make it when they visit because they still like it even though they are all meat eaters now. They say it reminds them of their grandparents who are now gone. Anyway, it is good and I thought I would share it.”
