Happy First Day of Summer!
I don't know if we can really say that it though. It has already felt like summer here way before it should have. But that's OK too.
This is another recipe from my mom.
You see if there was one thing I DIDN'T get from my mom, it would be her cooking skills (or lack thereof maybe?). I can remember many times for dinner having (you are going to die when you hear this!):
and canned biscuits
(which we called wop biscuits because you had to WOP them on the counter to open them.)
(Maybe one day I will have the courage to tell you about my husband's first Thanksgiving with us :))
Anyway, I have no clue where she found this recipe but we make it every summer over and over again.
And the only reason this can be called a gratin is because of the cheese and butter. Even though I didn't use much and I even used light! (Thank you Wikipedia!)
