Sounds good! To clarify though, is that evaporated milk or sweetened condensed milk? Since it says condensed I am assuming it is the latter.

OMG. My "spinster" great-aunt (my mentor, my friend, my confidant) used to always make that when I would come to stay with her. Thanks for sharing it. The recipe wasn't in her recipe box (one of the few things I DEMANDED was mine). That recipe brings back so many memories.

LAJ, I know that, and I assure you that the previous posters on this thread know that too. The point is, that using the correct term eliminates confusion for the thousands of guests who visit DC and are very new to cooking.

As Kayelle stated, we know the difference between condensed and evaporated, but every now and then someone will post a recipe and will use one term but mean the other. Some also use the term "canned milk," which can be confusing. In my house, if we say "canned milk" we mean evaporated, but others may mean sweetened condensed. :cool:

This reminds me of the word "soda." If my daughter asked her son to go to the store and buy soda she would expect him to come home with a carbonated soft drink. However, if I had ever asked my daughter to go to the store and buy soda, she had better come home with baking soda. :D

If I asked for soda, my DH would ask if I meant baking soda or washing soda :LOL:

I used to call soda "pop" and my southern relatives would laugh at me. They called soda- "drinks." To me, drinks were martinis and such. Now, I say soda. I guess its a regional thing.

Definitely a regional thing. One of my children, when very young, heard their mother call carbonated soft drinks, soda. They heard me call it "pop". Once day, this child asked us for some pop crackers, meaning soda crackers, of course.:LOL: I understand from some of my southern friends that any pop or soda in their area is called coke, no matter the flavor.

English and colloquialisms, such an interesting thing is language.:)

Goodweed,
language is a wonderful thing. My cousin in N.C. used to use the word "Cheerwine" for all soft drinks. Its' made by South Carolina bottling Co. and some people have never heard of it. I used to love it. Cross between Cherry Coke and Dr. Pepper, maybe.
