    I still have these recipe cards! I’ve always liked this recipe though I haven’t made it in a very long time but bought instant potatoes (a no no in my kitchen) recently so that I could make it again. Stumbling across this web site was fun and brought back a lot of food memories, some good, some not so good. I look forward to browsing for some good forgotten food.
