Oh, Ellen, I'm a bit embarrassed to admit this, but I have no idea what "oleo" is! Maybe it's because I'm a Yankee. (I recently got up the guts to admit to my husband of thirteen years that before I met him, I thought "barbecue" was what you did to cook hamburgers outside on the grill.) Can you explain oleo? I'd like to try out your recipe! And view "Dear to my Heart," which I have also never heard of. I've been enjoying your reminiscences. Susan
