Personal Notes:
Southern Living did a 2 page spread in November 1999 on this recipe with pictures of Clarissa and her dining room decorated for a party. Clarissa McConnell was a gourmet cook and loved to entertain. We never turned down an invitation to their home. Jack and Frank were also close friends and we traveled together to Ireland and then to England and Scotland twice.
