Directions:
“Chop up one BIG onion fine. Peel, slice and dice potatoes--into 1/4 -1/2 inch squares—enough so the big white bowl is almost full.” Add celery—a stick (or two?) “diced small.” Add a big carrot—“grated large.” Add 2 slices of ham—“diced small.” Add ½ to 1 cube of margarine. Add 1 ½ to 2 cans of evaporated milk. Season with parsley, basil, salt, garlic powder or salt or “garlic cloves, diced real tiny.” I can’t remember: Did he then add water or milk to fill the pot? He made this often but I only took the recipe down when he made it the day after Christmas in ’98 also noting: Serve with tossed green salad with lots of veggies.
