This seems to have been a busy year for my folks, in terms of dinner parties. Let’s get started.
Jan. 5 – Bob’s [family] and Grandma
– hot ham on buns, etc.
Not sure how many of Bob & Mary Ann’s family came for dinner, but they had all 10 kids at this point, with the oldest being around 20 years old.
Jan. 12 – John & Teddy
– pork tenderloin casserole
And there it is again. Not only must this have been a very tasty dish, I’m sure it was fairly quick to put together to have appeared on so many occasions.
Mar. 15 – Supper Club
– stuffed celery, carrots, crackers (no dip)
– rice supreme casserole with ham; lime & cheese jello; rolls
– chocolate potato cake
– choc. chip mint ice cream
Chocolate potato cake. Hmmmmm. I’m sure the addition of mashed potatoes was the secret ingredient, and I can only trust that it was worth it.
Of course, as I sit here googling some of these recipes, I’m also kicking myself. I threw away most of Mom’s extensive collection of recipes clipped from magazines and newspapers.
You can’t keep everything, right? Right???
