This time of year I miss my Nana, but this helps me remember her - and what I might imagine as simpler times. I can be idealistic, can't I?

Meanwhile for the white sauce (a crucial component)
This is an austere, war time recipe from the 30's. It reminds me of a time when the art of domesticity was considered an art and knowledge was passed down through the generations. My Nana, Thelma, was magnificent and so I proudly share this with you. Although, she sometimes altered this a bit and added some chocolate chips, it is great on its own.The white sauce does make this dish. You can alter the sugar to personal taste, if you like. I would think a splash of Kahlua might be lovely too.
