A Friend of McHenry County Blog from Fox River Grove sent this message from the past as their 100th birthday approaches:
Inspired by June Yde’s day after Thanksgiving turkey curry in the late 1960’s, I came up with turkey pizza in the late 1970’s.
We took leftover turkey to the Woodstock Pizza Hut and added it to cheese pizza.
It tasted quite good.
The banana pumpkin pie came in the same timeframe.
Eating orange pumpkin pie that tastes like banana cream pie seems to have messed too much with my family’s taste buds, so I stopped making it.
