My mom used to bake date nut bread all the time but unfortunately I don't have her recipe. The loaf I made today has the addition of raisins. It's good but not as good as my mom's. However, my husband said he doesn't remember his grandmother's date nut bread ever tasting this good!
I made 2 pans of meatless lasagna today and a batch of potato salad. We're going to visit my father-in-law tomorrow and I'm bringing cold cuts for sandwiches, and figured the potato salad would be a good side for the sandwiches. I'm splitting the lasagna between my FIL, my vegetarian son, and some for us.
There used to be a department store, part of a chain, that had a restaurant on site. After a day of shopping my mom, sister and I would grab a bite to eat. Mom always ordered the turkey croquettes. I've never attempted to make them before but had leftover chicken and made some tonight. Easy peasy.
