"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:
This is one of Sue Howell's recipes. She is one of Aunt Hattie and Uncle Moss's daughter-in-laws. Jimmie Howell was always so good to visit Grandmother and Grandad in Dimmitt. Just a side note, Jimmie's nickname for Sue was "Squaw". She was a school counselor, I believe. And a very good cook.
