Scalloped Potatoes Etc.

 Scalloped Potatoes Etc.
The "Etc." in this family-heirloom recipe stands for all the homegrown vegetables my mother, now 90, once hand-diced before baking the casserole in her old reliable cookstove. My food processor now speeds up the preparation. But, otherwise, I follow Mom's recipe. So does my daughter—she recently told me, "It makes my apartment smell just like home!"
