The 4th of July is just around the corner and with families and friends getting together I wanted to give one of my family's favorite recipe. Scroodles was given to me by a friend. You know recipes and gifts given by friends never let you forget who gave them to you. This recipe is one that everytime I make it I always think of my friend, Sharon Bassett. It has been three years ago today (Father's Day)that my family stood in line for over a couple hours among friends to view Sharon's body. Sharon fought breast cancer for a few years, thinking she had won the battle. The cancer came back, then she was in remission again and then it went to many other organs of her body. She gave it her all, as she did everything in life. She was such a special person, she started the Sharon Bassett Breast Cancer Organization. She believed that every woman should have "HOPE" and she seen to it that when learning of another woman's breast cancer that she took to their home a large gift basket, gave the woman a new make-over and sometimes even a trip, just so they could feel good and have "HOPE" and want to continue on in life. Yes, Sharon was such a special gal !! Sharon never tired of giving and loved to give. So, everytime I make this recipe "SCROODLES" my family has memories of Sharon & her love for life.
