I’ve launched Project Clean Out Old Files. Today I started going through old files of my Mom’s—seemed about time, 5 years after her death. She traded recipes around with all her friends a lot, and she was a contributor to the original Betty Crocker Cookbook back in the 50s. I found this little ditty with some of her old recipes:
I didn’t have potatoes–so I substituted rice.
I didn’t have paprika–so I used another spice.
I didn’t have tomato sauce–I used tomato paste.
A whole can, not a half can–I don’t believe in waste.
A friend gave me the recipe–she said you couldn’t beat it.
There must be something wrong with her–I couldn’t even eat it.
Hah!..Blessings and have fun in your kitchen!..
