From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...This recipe is at least a decade old and it was among those I pulled from my old recipe box last week. It, like many of the others buried there, was often used and retired only because we had it so often we tired of it. I made it for our dinner tonight and was reminded why it originally found such favor with my family. I think your family will enjoy too. It is reasonably quick to prepare and it can be on the table within an hour. Properly garnished, it can serve as a company as well as a family meal and I know you will be pleased with it. Here is how it is made.
