This recipe was sent to me by my friend, Sammie Rowse of Chambers, NE. Sammie wrote, "This was in our little rural electric Nebraskan magazine. It's from Mildred Naurkal from Clarkson [NE]."

Another great Easy Recipe

Love At Home

There is beauty all around
When there's love at home.
There is joy in every sound
When there's love at home.

Roses bloom beneath our feet,
All the earth is a garden sweet,
Making life a bliss complete,
When there's love at home.

-- John Hugh McNaughton (1829-1891)
