Purchased from the McDonald Estate in Wylie, Texas in 1990. Dated 1974. This is an incredible recipe. I made it on Bunco Night when the theme was Chinese. You wanna see 12 women go nuts over Chinese, this is the one.

  2. Combine onions, celery, bell peppers and mushrooms.
  3. Put vegetable oil in a large frying pan, turn flame to medium, and add the cut-up vegetables.
