    Michael,Thank you for such a well told story and for sharing it. Some sweet mermoies brought up of my grandma reading this. Not too sweet though. The other side of her was pretty salty. No one messed with Ruth! Insufferably practical and marvelously intimidating. So true.Can not wait to try the recipe. It looks brilliant! Oh my, I can smell it already.
