When I Made This For My Family, It Disappeared So Fast I Couldn’t Believe It
My grandmother had an amazing talent of creating the most delicious meals out of simple ingredients. I guess it was because she had lived through some hard times when she was young. I swear, if there were four ingredients in the fridge, she was able to make a 3-course meal for five people out of them. Or at least that’s what it seemed like!
There are a few special dishes that I remember her making. One of them was the SOS meal – I think I remember this one because of the funny name. I never found out what the letters stood for, but as a little girl I always imagined it was something people ate when their boat was about to sink. Haha!
These days we have access to the most exotic ingredients and we could make meals our grandparents never even dreamed of, but in my opinion the simplest recipes are always the best ones. My kids are crazy about this recipe that I found on Serious Eats, and so am I. Every time I make this, I think of Grandma!
