My father in law was a great cook!  Dad would cut recipes out of the paper, I think that is where this is from.  He made it and we all liked it,  I loved it the MOST and whenever we would come home Dad always made this for me.  This is simple enough for a weeknight, but fancy enough for a "special dinner".
