Additional Comments
For years while growing up, my mother has made this recipe for our family, probably due to the fact that she could feed many of us on so few dollars worth of ingredients. She came to visit me in Kalamazoo, Michigan when I was hapai for my first son and showed me how to make it. My son is 26 now and still comes home to eat Grandma Dorothy's Chicken Long Rice with us.
