I recently found a Grand Rapids, Minnesota postcard in an antique store, and I think it's from the 1970's. When I flipped it over, I discovered it didn't have your typical 'Having a good time, wish you were here' thing written on the back. Rather, somebody used it as a recipe card! (Maybe the fish on the front made the person hungry...)
Anyway, a "pizza hot dish" recipe from a North Dakota newspaper was scribbled on the back:
So I figured, what the heck, I'll make it for dinner tonight! Garbage Puff put on his cute little red bib, picked up his little red fork, and pronounced it "pretty darn tasty".
Here's the unscribbled version if you want to try it. (I used low fat options whenever I could.)
