Recipe by Lori Lee

I got this recipe after going over some very old recipes from my Mother. It was cut out of a Buffalo Evening Newspaper. On the back of the recipe were different infractions that people had done and what their tickets cost them. One person had a unlicensed driving ticket for $10.00.
