I know the trend now is fresh vegetables and farm to table menus, however, I love to browse through my old cookbooks and I will find recipes that I really enjoyed. I was browsing through the St. Stephens Lutheran Church (Hickory NC) cookbook published in 1984. I purchased the cookbook for 10 cents at a yard sale. It is very special to me as it belonged to a fellow church member that has passed away.
I remember this type of casserole from that time period and I might even make one of them for our Christmas meal. They are simple to make but all the flavors blending together make them very tasty.
Probably in 1984 there wasn’t much concern for preservatives or using cream of mushroom soup. I think women in 1984 wanted to prepare tasty meals for their families and did not feel guilty about taking shortcuts.
Thanks for stopping by.
