Here’s the last of my Grandma’s Recipes posts – maybe I’ll dig through her clippings again one day and find some more to share, but I’ll leave it here for now. These are pretty hard to top, anyway – Grandma’s mystery recipe notes. Or: potatoes and *what*?!
As I sifted through the pile, I set aside a few bits of paper with weird, seemingly random recipe notes jotted down on them. They were both really funny and, in some cases, potentially really worrying:
Tuna, peas, and potato chips – can’t go wrong there, right?
And then there’s some that are just notes on whatever must’ve been convenient right then.
I especially like this one, and not just because it’s funny, though it is. I have to wonder if she actually remembered what she wanted to fill with cranberry sauce when she came across this note later. But really I just like imagining the Tupperware Party she was at, trading cooking ideas with friends and finding this one important enough to write down.
But these two had my mother and I practically in tears from laughing – what could they possibly be for? They’re two sides of the same card but sure seem to be two different recipes – or at least I really, really hope they are.
Lots of potatoes, lots of cheese, freeze. Very cryptic.
And this side is so vague it could be for practically anything sort of dough-based – but I particularly like how she’s specified that the eggs are to be *whole*.
Because that’s what could really screw the whole thing up if you got it wrong.
