I saw this posted at Jane’s blog (who hosts the weekly menu plan!) & I thought it was such a cute idea!
Jane & her friend were talking about un-recipes that their families have. Things that aren’t truly recipes, they don’t have a fancy name but everybody in the family knows what you are talking about when you say it & most people outside of your family thinks they are gross/weird.
When I read her story about cottage cheese & Ritz crackers, my family’s un-recipe immediately came to mind.
We have: iced graham crackers.
When we were little, mom would make us a “sandwich” using only graham crackers & icing. It was one of my favorite “desserts”. Mom used to babysit Greg & his sister after school & it was one their favorites, too. In fact, when Greg and I started dating, he asked my mom if she would make him some iced graham crackers. He still eats them to this day & he recently introduced our kids to them. Shockingly, them love them, too!
Does your family have an un-recipe?
