Jeanine Molnar

This is my Moms older sister Jeanine. She submitted this recipe to our family cookbook in 1995 also. My Aunt Jeanine is great fun. She has lived in Calgary since before I was born but now her and Uncle Frank spend alot of time during the winter in S. Cal. Visiting her house in Canada was always a blast. She and Uncle Frank have three boys, Ron (deceased), Randy, and Kevin.

When we were kids we'd (my sister and I and Kevin) collect pop bottles and go trade them in at the 7-11 for penny candy. We'd swim at the community pool. One of my favorite things to do was go to the outskirts of town and shoot Kevin's bb-gun at birds, rabbits, and pot-guts. We'd exhaust ourselves jumping on Kevin's bed. And those boys are the ones who introduced me to REO Speedwagon (loudly). LOL!

We'd go to the Calgary Stampede where they still have the only authentic Chuck Wagon races in the world. You should see a team of horses pulling a wagon like that. It's incredible, and those races are sold out every year. You haven't experienced a rodeo like The Calgary Stampede...there's only one. The biggest seller of memorabelia on the mid-way would have to be Cowboy hats, belts, and boots. Being at The Calgary Stampede made everyone want to be a cowboy, or a cowgirl whether you'd ever ridden a horse or not. Then if we didn't attend the Stampede during the day, we still sat out in their back yard at about 10pm and watch the nightly fireworks together.

All my aunts are amazing housekeepers and cooks. Aunt Jeanine has a big heart. She doesn't toot her own horn...but she is one of the kindest people I know. She'd do anything for her family or a friend. My Mom and Jeanine weren't just sisters...they were friends. Jeanine and Frank have been such a kind support system for my Dad since Mother passed away. You'll be seeing more of her recipes in the future. I love you Aunt Jeanine.
