Personal Notes:
Another great recipe contributed by Mary Moore in her mother, Lucille Hanson's memory.
Keith was a little older than I was so I didn't get to hang out with him. He and Kathy hung out together and were good friends besides cousins. I remember one day Keith brought over some chocolate covered pretzels and I heard Kathy and him talking and laughing. Being the nosy little girl I was (still am) I just had to know what was going on. I asked them what was going on. Keith said he had just brought some chocolate covered pretzels over and thought he would share them with us. I asked if I could have one and he eagerly gave me one. I should've put two and two together and figured those two were up to something since they were still laughing. Being my naive self I took it and gobbled it down as fast as I could. Wow, those were pretty good, I could use another one of those. They started laughing and told me they were dog treats. Blast it anyway! They got me again! That was just one of the many ways they pulled one over on me.
