"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is Grandma Bohnker's. I have her handwritten copy of this recipe -- when I pulled it out of my file to enter it in here, it still had a faint whiff of her about it -- I smelled it and remembered her wonderful hearty laugh, the smell of coffee in her kitchen, the wonderfully expressive gestures of her hands.

Here is an exact transcription of what she wrote as notes on this recipe:

"This is one of my old standby recipes. Great for pot lucks or when you have a crowd to feed. You always get a compliment with this dish. Can use two 1 1/2 C casseroles just divide the bread etc equally. You must refrigerate over nite. All this needs is salad.

"One thing I like about this it can be fixed a head of time I wish you would cut the recipe in half and cook it for your self first I have even put in 2 casseroles & frozen 1 for later. You can feed a crowd with not much meat, leftover ham or turkey."
