Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This was the original recipe used for the Story Halloween tradition. Jim would make the lasagna and Fran would make the doughnuts. Although this tradition sounds strange, it was born out of necessity. People would come and go at the Story house during Halloween. So, a meal needed to be able to sit in the oven and be served as kids ran in and out and parents collapsed on the couch.
