Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
One time when the kids were younger, I made a large batch of these for Bill, Jr. when he came home from college one weekend. Since the leftovers are often fought over, Bill decided to hide a very large container of them under his bed so that he would have some to take back to school with him later. Only he forgot they were under there! --Linda

These are legendary in the Bray family and a favorite of Uncle Bill's. They are requested every time anyone asks "what's for dinner?" and practically mandated for birthday celebrations and family gatherings. Don't believe anyone who says Uncle Bill used to hide leftovers under his bed so no one else could get them!!! -- Bill
