camera I was looking into buying. The point being instead of taking pictures on my
Samsung Mega, I actually can have some control over the quality of my photos!
I'm pretty excited! We all know I love to cook and I'm pretty good at that but I haven't had
a decent camera since my Yashica 35mm film camera, which I loved but became
obsolete with the birth of digitals!
My husband saved some of the barn wood form the reconstruction of our barn this summer,
which in this photograph I used the natural side. I have 2 other boards too for a bit of diversity!
Camera. Check. Board. Check.
Now I can concentrate on getting a wonderful source of artificial light. I prefer natural light but let's be honest, pretty soon it will be getting dark here before 4:30 pm so that's not happening!
and counterintuitive! Gotta love Google! Just Google it! This is the original photo.
The previous photo is the photo- shopped version! Quite a difference, eh?
Now that I have totally digressed from my original goal, which was to share this
vintage recipe with you, I'll resume there!.
My Mom made this easy, tasty side dish at least once or twice a year. It pairs greatly with fresh pork, ham and poultry. I have never paired it with beef but can't image it would not pair well.
When I asked my Mom if she still had the recipe, she couldn't find it.
We both remembered the name and several times over the last 5 or 6 years, I have Googled it to no avail! Then last year I hit the jackpot! The original name, apparently was Mrs. John F, Kennedy's Casserole Marie Blanche! I can tell you with a great amount of certainty that Mrs. JFK did not eat this on a daily basis, or she would have looked like a house!! Not health food but sometimes even First Ladies need to splurge!
It's funny, you know Google, Mrs. Smith is the contributor on one site. Mrs. Fowler and family on another. Then, of the ones that actually contribute it to Jacquie Kennedy, one says she served it at a dinner for her sister and brother-in-law, Princess and Prince Radziwell. Who knows but it is good!! What the real story is, the world may never know!
noodles according to the package directions.
pepper and mix it all together, I diverge from the original recipe and use less noodles but the same amount of cottage cheese and sour cream. We find it a bit dry otherwise.
