Today was a very windy day! After doing my usual rounds around the house of vacuuming, dishes, laundry and trash, I decided to do my daily walk with the family pooch! Always eager to go anywhere, we set off on our usual 45-minute jaunt…only windier. Normally, we see squirrels, ducks and geese, but the wind must have kept them all closer to home. By the time we arrived home, I was sporting a very fashionable beehive from the 60s. Complete with pine needles, twigs and leaves. It’s a shame this hairstyle is no longer fashionable.
In any case, for some reason I was inspired to make this recipe.
He and I recall eating this a lot growing up. It is rich and flavorful. Her recipe card for this is even stained from the ingredients during each use. Very tasty!
