“A quilter's dream recipe! Get the meat started, then dash off to the sewing room to whip up a few quilt blocks. Soon the whole house is scented with an enticing aroma. So you have to come back and check the pot, mmm, now's time to add the veggies and fruits. Time enough to make a few handfuls of quilt blocks. Start the water for the egg noodles while making the gravy, and ahhh...look what happened while you were sewing! Supper's made!”
