This recipe came from my sister (a Home Economics teacher as they were called back in the 60's and 70's). It is as much fun as it is delicious. You line up all of the ingredients on a buffet or counter and then, adding them one by one in order, build a 14 layer dinner! This is written for 6 servings, but can be increased to serve any size crowd! The sizes are approximates since you can add more or less of each layer as you prefer. She would say you can only leave out 2 layers, but I am more flexible! : )
If this is for a party where your guests ask, "what can I bring",have them bring prepared ingredients in serving bowls and your prep time is now next to nothing!
