I think I might try this for lunch after church. It looks easy enough. I’ll probably use fresh broccoli and blanch it slightly and add a bit of sweet onion.

Use half n’ half instead of milk, after semi-cooking the broccoli, saute w/mushrooms, bit of chopped onion in butter for a richer flavor :)

Just tried this recipe over the weekend. Very tasty, yet not quite as dense as am used to. But I did use all fresh vegetables. Next time I think I’ll add extra egg. Would definately recommend!

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
