Well, yes I was as a matter of fact, but somehow I got sidetracked a few weeks ago and didn't know if my sponsors were still available....

give me some of that money n I'll go to school cjs.

I remember dishes like CHICKEN CACCIATORE, GOULASH and that dish with noodles, sour cream and ground beef ??? We had lots of TV dinners and leftover meatloaf. But when my Grandma came over she baked and boyz cold that wonderful woman bake. I would sneak up behind her and undo the neat little bow she tied in her apron string. I knew she loved it. But I would laugh and run away like she wanted to catch me always acting surprised. The perfect Grandma. I have in my possession somewhere her hand written recipe for her loaf bread. I've named it after her last name, Stone Bread.
I have never made a cinnamon roll but I've watched her so many times as a small boy peeking over the counter I could tell you every step and her secrets I have *tears*

happy days, yes Dave - that was such a fun project. I think it started with someone asking us what we made our families for dinner when we didn't have any money and boy were we all off and running with that!

RD - you hit it, the recipes in the book for the most part were exactly like your grandma's - family dishes just filled with memories.

Have fun, Dave!

I don't even keep CJS Chef Scholarship Fundraiser cookbook in my bookshelves. It's on my desk to peruse and plan menus.

I'd write her and say, "Company's coming and I'm making #56, #79, #17 etc. The recipes are easy, 'cheap' and really good.
