My grandpa always had the best recipes. This one is no different. Today it is 100 degrees and we don’t have air conditioning! It’s summer so I’m taking a little break from baking in the oven to try out recipes that won’t heat up the house as much. Our whole family loved this. We added some white rice to complete the meal.
