Good and Simple

Hey! I have not posted anything in a week! The week got away from me and here we are and it's Monday. On the bright side of it being Monday I only have a three day work week, so I don't mind at all(this week). The recipe I have today is an old-fashioned one, it is easy to make and just a simple food. My friend at This Blessed Life gave me a Taste of Home Recipe book for Christmas and that is where I got this from. I made it for my in-laws a couple weeks ago and it was hit. Whenever I make anything I always cross my fingers because my father in law is very picky when it comes to his food. But he loved it, so to me that is a success! I hope you enjoy this old-fashioned recipe and maybe it will take you back to a simpler time.
------side note make sure you check back Wednesday because I will be taking part in a blog party over at This Blessed Life. I will be showing off my SUPER deals with other women in blog world. I invite you to attend on WEDNESDAY MARCH 31st over at THIS BLESSED LIFE
